In this work, we propose the new combination Hofmeisterella falcata (Linden & Reichenbach f.) Nauray & A. Galán for use in the Colombian flora. This species differs from H. eumicroscopica Reichenbach f. by its flowers with wider sepals and petals and by its column and labellum with conspicuous bristles. Consequently, the genus Hofmeisterella Reichenbach f. consists of two species and is no longer a monospecific genus. Moreover, the lectotype of Telipogon falcatus Linden & Reichenbach f. is formally designated.
