Abstract

We present a revision of all the species and available names of Eriopsis, a long misinterpreted genus of Orchidaceae described by John Lindley in 1847. A new species from the Venezuelan Guayana, E. escalerensis, is described and illustrated. An additional species from the Andes is circumscribed morphologically and geographically, but it remains undescribed until further data are available. A key to identify all the seven recognized species, conservation assessments in accordance with the B set of criteria of the IUCN, and miscellaneous notes are also provided.
