ZAMBRANO, Bosco Javier y SOLANO-GOMEZ, Rodolfo. A new natural hybrid of Dracula (Orchidaceae: Pleurothallidinae) from southwestern Ecuador. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.3, pp.758-761. ISSN 2007-8706.
A new natural hybrid of Dracula from Ecuador is described and illustrated, Dracula x pinasensis, which was recently discovered in the Andean wet forest from Southwestern Ecuador. The new hybrid is compared with the South American D. mantissa, D. mopsus, and D. ophioceps, as well the Central American D. pusilla, the closest allies. D. mopsus and D. ophioceps are pointed out as the putative parents of this natural hybrid.
