Nomenclatural and taxonomic changes are proposed in Cattleya (Orchidaceae): Cattleya vandenbergii Fraga & R.Borges is proposed to replace C. duveenii (Fowlie) Van den Berg (non Pabst & A.F.Mello); Laelia wetmorei Ruschi is transferred to Cattleya, and Laelia ×espirito-santensis Pabst is lectotypified and included in its synonymy; a new status as nothospecies is proposed for Cattleya ×fidelensis (Pabst) Van den Berg.
