A New Species of Lockhartia (Orchidaceae) from Colombia
A new species of Lockhartia from Colombia is described and illustrated. The new species, Lockhartia niesseniae , is similar to L. biserra and L. micrantha, from which it differs by the obovate petals and a subrhombic, shortly apiculate middle lobe of the lip. The differences between those species and a key to Colombian species of Lockhartia are provided.
