BARROS, Fábio de. Novelties and taxonomic notes for Brazilian species of the genera Epidendrum, Platystele, Pleurothallis and Scaphyglottis (Orchidaceae). Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 1996, vol.10, n.1, pp.139-151. ISSN 0102-3306.

One new combination is proposed in the genus Epidendrum L.: E. secundum var. albescens (Pabst) F. Barros; three species are reported for the first time for Brazil: Platystele stenostachya (Rchb. f.) Garay, Pleurothallis blaisdellii S. Wats, and Pleurothallis navicularis Lindl. Hexadesmia cearensis (Griseb.) Schultes is proposed as a new synonym of Scaphyglottis fusiformis (Griseb.) Schultes. An illustration of Epidendrum dichaeoides Carnevalli & Romero is presented.

Keywords : Orchidaceae; Epidendrum; Platystele; Pleurothallis; Scaphyglottis.
