Four new species of the orchid genus Telipogon, T. camargoi Szlach. & Kolan., T. cundinamarcae Szlach. & Kolan., T. salamancae Szlach. & Kolan., and T. rotundilabia Szlach. & Kolan. are described and illustrated based on Colombian material. Most of them are restricted to the high montane areas and only T. camargoi was found in the premontane region. All new species are distinguishable from the most similar taxa based on the petal shape and venation, lip shape and ornamentation and in some cases also on the gynostemium surface.
