Abstract

Two new species and one record of Epidendrum, found in the forests of the Carpish Montane Forest Regional Conservation Area, are described, illustrated and compared with morphologically similar species. Epidendrum churubambense is characterized by the roots present only at base of primary pseudobulbs, the narrower leaves, the narrowly lanceolate and the yellow-green flowers with sepals slightly tinged brown. Epidendrum unchogense is characterized by lanceolate leaves, flowers with longer sepals, trullate petals, usually more long, entire lip, narrowly ovate with acute apex. Epidendrum sanctae-rosae a previously known species from Colombia, is reported as new country record to the Peruvian flora.
