ABSTRACT
Sobralia (Orchidaceae) is a genus of about 150 species distributed in Mesoamerica and tropical and subtropical regions of South America. Its species are most often tall plants with single, showy but fugacious flowers. As the result of a morphological study based on herbarium material examined by the authors, Sobralia pakaraimense Baranow & Szlach. from Guyana is described and illustrated as a new species. A key for determi-nation of all Sobralia species reported till now from Guyana is provided.
