Cattleya is the fourth largest genus of subtribe Laeliinae (Orchidaceae) in number of species. In order to keep up with current classification, new combinations are needed for one species and a form described in Hoffmannseggella. Therefore, the combinations Cattleya caulescens f. fantinellii and Cattleya locatellii are proposed and the new status of nothospecies is indicated for Cattleya ×diamantinensis.
