Lepanthes gerardensis (Orchidaceae), una nueva especie de Costa Rica
Keywords:Orchidaceae, Lepanthes, twig-epiphytism, Costa Rica.
Lepanthes gerardensis from north-central Costa Rica is described and illustrated. It is most simi- lar to the Mexican L. ancylopetala Dressler, from which it differs in shorter habit, petiolate leaves with broadly elliptic blades, and different lip shape. It appears to be a specialized twig-epiphyte.
