Crocodeilanthe chachapoyensis Damian sp. nova (Orchidaceae: Pleurothallidinae), a new species from Amazonas, Peru, is proposed. It is similar in overall morphology to the Ecuadorian C. molleturoi. However, C. chachapoyensis is distinguished by its shorter ramicauls, larger resupinate flowers and 3-lobed, callose-free lip with a pair of cavities above the base. A line drawing and habitat information are provided as well as a comparison with morphologically similar species.
