Abstract

The species of the Brazilian genus Hoffmannseggella H. G. Jones (Orchidaceae, Laeliinae) are under investigation as part of a biosystematic study. A new species, H. viridiflora Verola & Semir, is recognized by differences in morphological characters, such as the spatulate petals and reduced lip, the greenish yellow coloration of the perianth, and the chromosome number, 2n  =  44. Its relationship with closely related taxa, such as H. bradei (Pabst) V. P. Castro & Chiron, is discussed.
