Abstract

Liparis cordifolia Hook. f. var. gongshanensis X. H. Jin (Orchidaceae, Malaxideae) is described from Yunnan, China. It differs from the typical variety by having larger flowers with the sepals and petals ca. 1.1 cm long (vs. 0.8–0.9 cm in variety cordifolia) and a circular, ciliate lip with a pair of small calli at the base (vs. lip obovate-deltoid, entire, and ecallose in variety cordifolia). The new variety appears to be restricted to evergreen humid forest in the Dulong River valley (upper portion of the Irrawaddy River), from Yunnan, China. A lectotype is designated for L. cordifolia.
