Karremans, A.P. 2012. Illustrations and Studies in Neotropical Orchidaceae. 3. On the identity of Dracontia pachyglossa and D. ramonensis; with a new species, D. lueriana (Pleurothallidinae). Ann. Naturhist. Mus. Wien, B. 113: 119-132.
Abstract. The Costa Rican Dracontia ramonensis is discussed and illustrated. It had been already illustrated as early
as 1867 by A.R. Endrés, but only described in 1923 by Rudolf Schlechter. Costa Rican specimens of that
species have been misidentified as Dracontia pachyglossa, a species known only from Mexico and Guatemala.
Additionally the name Dracontia ramonensis has been incorrectly applied to an unnamed species from
Costa Rica, here described and illustrated as D. lueriana.
