Abstract
Schiedeella schlechteriana Szlachetko & Sheviak is described as new. It is distinguished by a lip with narrowly rhombic hypochile and abruptly expanded epichile, dendritically proliferated nerves, and apically-directed auricles. It is compared with related species, one of which, S. valerioi (Ames & Schweinf.) Szlachetko & Sheviak, is formally transferred from Spiranthes.
