Continuing studies of Neotropical Goodyerinae have revealed that the descriptions of 15 new taxa are required in the genera Aspidogyne (2) and Microchilus (12 species, 1 subspecies). Microchilus peytonorum (including ssp. juxtasilvae), M. rojasii, Physurus peterianus, and P. roseus var. angustifolius, are respectively considered to be new synonyms of Microchilus ovatus, M. pedrojuanensis, Ligeophila clavigera var. rhodostachys, and L. rosea. The synonymies of Aspidogyne foliosa and Ligeophila rosea are elaborated upon. Aspidogyne fimbrillaris is neotypified.
