Abstract
A new species, Reichantha jorge-warneri, from the Atlantic plains of Nicaragua and Costa Rica is described and illustrated. The species is similar to Reichantha tonduzii, but can be distinguished by its reddish inflorescence and ovary, glabrous sepals that are stained with red at the base and are distinctly shorter, lateral sepals with parallel tails, and the trullate-acuminate apex of the lip.
