Abstract

Liparis langtangensis B. B. Raskoti & Ale (Orchidaceae, Malaxideae) is a new species described and illustrated from Nepal. It is similar to L. campylostalix Rchb. f., sharing a cuneate corolla lip without a basal callus. Liparis langtangensis is distinguished by its oblanceolate leaf blades, the basal twisting of the ovary and pedicel, spreading or divericate lateral sepals, and a longer (to 5 mm) column, with two fleshy basal pads. Notes on the diagnostic characters used to distinguish it from allied species are provided.
