Govenia viaria, from Monteverde to the Dota area, and Palmorchis eidae, from the area of Golfito, are described and illustrated, and Dichaea elliptica, from Panama and southern Costa Rica, is described. A new combination is published for Chondroscaphe endresii, a distinct species that has been confused with C. bicolor; a broader concept of Scaphyglottis calls for the following new combinations: Scaphyglottis bidentata, S. cuniculata, and S. imbricata. The new name Pleurothallis grammata is published, based on Myoxanthus vittatus Pupulin & M.A.Blanco.
