Dressler, R.L. 1972. Dos especies nuevas de Gongora. Orquideología 7(2): 71-77.

Abstract. The complex of Gongora quinquenervis is difficuit to classify, partly because of its inherent complexity and partly because of sloppy botanical work. It is suggested that the group can best be understood through field work and a knowledge of the variation within natural populations. A terminology is suggested for the structure of the lip (figure 1), alld two new species are described from Central America. Gongora gibba is charaterized by the ventrally convex base of the lip and occurs with G. quinquenervis and G. tricolor in central Panama. Gongora claviodora has garnet-red flowers with the "horns" reduced to thin angles and occurs with G. quinquenervis in western Costa Rica.
