While preparing an account of Crepidium (Orchidaceae) for Flora of Thailand, a new species was discovered on limestone hills in peninsular Thailand; it is described here as Crepidium falcifolium. It has previously been collected and identified as C. godefroyi, but is more similar to C. khasianum.Wedemonstrate that the new species differs from either in both vegetative and floral characters.Adetailed description and illustrations are provided together with notes on taxonomy, habitat requirements, and conservation status.
