+"This is the first record of H. huberi for Brazil. Habenaria huberi is similar and close related to H. pratensis, but apparently distinct by the color of the flowers (orange vs. pale yellow in H. pratensis) and the lateral segments of the lip (distinctly spatulate vs. linear or discreetly spatulate in H. pratensis). Habenaria huberi differs from H. spathullifera by the color of the flowers (orange vs. bright yellow) and size of pedicellate ovary (3-3.7 cm long vs. 1.6-2.5 cm long in H. spathullifera), and from H. glazioviana by the color of the flowers (orange vs. pale yellow) and narrower segments of the posterior petal and lip (midlobe of lip about 5 mm wide vs. 9-22 mm wide in H. glazioviana)."
