During standard taxonomic practice, I have found some names published in Hoffmannseggella that were overlooked by indexation in both International Plant Names Index (IPNI) and World Checklist of Selected Plant Families (WCSPF). In order to keep the taxonomy up to date, I provide new combinations for these taxa, all belonging to Cattleya series Parviflorae. I also propose new infrageneric nothotaxa in Cattleya to accommodate nothospecies between different infrageneric taxa.
