Maxillaria ctenostachya, T?^/^/^^./. {Orchideai) \ canlescens, foliis sub bulbo diphyllo vaginantibus pluribus, folio surarao laminigero, foliis reliquis triangulis ancipitibus carinatis, laminis ligulatis acutis, iuHores- centiis distichis, squamis triangulis carinatis pluribus (13-15) inibrican- tibus, floribus exsertis secundis, bractea appressa acuta parva, ovarium subpequante, raento obtusangulo parvo, sepalis triangulo-ligulatis acnmi- natis, petalis subciequalibus, labello trilobo subventricoso, lobis lateralibus obtusnngulis, lobo medio ligulato obtuso producto, flavo furfuraceo, carinis ternis serrnlatis a basi in basin lobi medii, ibi abrupto calloso conflueuti- bus, utrinque superaddita carinula serrata abbrevitita. — A very interesting species, in a morphologicnl point of view. The floriferous axes are covered with imbricate carinate triangular sheaths, and thus they look like stems of Lockhartias. From the axils of the sheaths arise the peduncled ex- serted ilowers, which are ochre-coloured, and very like those o^ Maxillaria hpidota, Lindl., belonging to the " acaules" group. Their tails are so loiio- that tiiev remind one of a Brassia. Hab. Imported from Costa Rica by Messrs. Veitch.— G^/y/. Chrun. 1870, p. 39.
