A new species of Elleanthus (Orchidaceae) from Central America
During botanical tours in Alta Verapaz (Guatemala), a plant of the genus Elleanthus drew the attention of the senior author by the color of its leaves, intense purple on their abaxial side. After having thoroughly examined it we came to the conclusion that it was something different from any known species. It is described here as a new species and compared to its closest relative, Elleanthus hymenophorus, by means of morphological descriptions, botanical drawings and photos.
