Condylago furculifera from Panama is described and illustrated. This species is distinguished from its Colombian relative, C. rodrigoi, by more sparsely villous sepals (vs. densely white-villous); obovate-pan-durate petals without decurrent basal lobes and the ovate (vs. orbicular) viscid callus. The most striking feature, however, is the inflorescence with persistent, Y-shaped, flattened pedicels, each articulated to an “epipedicel” to 2 cm long. Colombian photographs suggest that C. rodrigoi also has an epipedicel between the pedicel and the flower, but the pedicel is much simpler. This epipedicel is of special interest, as the Pleurothallidinae are usually characterized by having the ovary articulated directly to the pedicel. A key to the species is given.
