Abstract

Gastrochilus brevifimbriatus S. R. Yi is described and illustrated as a new species of Gastrochilus D. Don (Orchidaceae, Aeridinae) from Jinfo Mountain, Chongqing Province, China. This new species is related to G. acinacifolius Z. H. Tsi, with both species characterized by the falcate, lanceolate leaves, the inflorescences opposite to the leaves, the yellow sepals and petals with purple spots, the similar petals and sepals, and the white lip. Gastrochilus brevifimbriatus differs by its longer stems (10–30 cm) and by the subflabellate epichile that is broader than the hypochile and has short fimbriae on the margins.
