Abstract

A new species of Encyclia (Orchidaceae) from Costa Rica is described and illustrated. Among Mesoamerican species of Encyclia, E. ossenbachiana may be distinguished by its strongly reflexed sepals and petals, linear-oblong, narrow lateral lobes of the lip, subquadrate-truncate midlobe, callus presenting two retrorse, rounded keels that join at the rear apex to form a narrow cuniculus, and the exauriculate column.
