Bogarín, D., F. Pupulin & H. Medina. 2008. A new Rodriguezia (Orchidaceae: Oncidiinae) from Ecuador. Orchids, Mag. Amer. Orchid Soc. in Lindleyana 21(2): 15-18.

Abstract. Rodriguezia pulcherrima is described and illustrated. Among the Ecuadorean species of Rodriguezia, R. pulcherrima is distinguished by the unique rhizomatous habit and elongate inflorescenses up to 30 cm long. Species of Rodriguezia with elongate rhizomes have been recorded from Brazil, where R. decora, R. obtusifolia and R. rigida occur. Within this group, R. pulcherrima is recognized by the pink flowers with a yellow spot on the midlobe of the lip, the geniculate synsepal, the glabrous, acute, apical teeth of the column which are shorter than the stigmatic arms, the oblique stigmatic arms, and the filiform stipe of the pollinarium.
