Bottom Line: It was illustrated for the first time by G.The newly named species can be easily recognized by its small habit, short leaves and small reddish-orange flowers, the non-ascending dorsal sepal and the obtuse petals that are shortly apiculate.Specklinia dunstervillei is formally described and illustrated once again and compared morphologically and genetically with its closest relatives.

ABSTRACT
Specklinia dunstervillei is described as a new species in recognition of the distinctness of a Venezuelan species related to and confused with Specklinia endotrachys. It was illustrated for the first time by G. C. K. Dunsterville in 1963 from a plant collected in Trujillo on the Cordillera de Merida. The newly named species can be easily recognized by its small habit, short leaves and small reddish-orange flowers, the non-ascending dorsal sepal and the obtuse petals that are shortly apiculate. Specklinia dunstervillei is formally described and illustrated once again and compared morphologically and genetically with its closest relatives.

Phylogenetic relationship amongst the species of the Specklinia endotrachys complex.The trees were produced with an analysis of the nrITS dataset of 50 sequences using BEAST v1.6.0. Node values are posterior probabilities. The tree was edited using FigTree v.1.3.1. A. Tree with branches transformed to be of equal length. B. Branch lengths relative to relative number of changes.

Mentions: The consensus gene tree (Fig 2) was obtained from a BEAST analysis of a matrix of 45 ITS sequences (Table 1), including 12 accessions belonging to 5 different species of the Specklinia endotrachys complex. The accessions of S. dunstervillei, S. endotrachys, S. pfavii, S. spectabilis and S. remotiflora are found in a highly supported monophyletic clade (P.P. = 0.99), sister to the accessions of S. montezumae.
