Abstract. A new species from western Panama, Maxillaria curvicolumna M.A. Blanco & Neubig is described and illustrated. It is distinguished by its rhizomatous habit; small, ovoid pseudobulbs subtended by a pair of narrow leaves with purple-spotted sheaths; a single terminal leaf; and white flowers with a sigmoid column. Maxillaria silvana Campacci, originally described from southern Bahia state in Brazil, is reported for the eastern slope of the Andes in Ecuador, and an augmented description is provided.
