Catasetum moorei was described in 1970 based on a plant collected near Iquitos, Peru. Here we provide a line drawing based on a flower from the holotype and photographs of a plant from Ecuador. Orchid growers and sellers have incorrectly assigned this name to plants of C. discolor, a species from the Guayana Shield (in Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, and the Guianas) that apparently also occurs in Peru.
