Remarks.

A complete revision of the genus Opistophthalmus  is being prepared (Prendini in prep.) and we decided not to designate lectotype and paralectotype among the type specimens in order to avoid interferencing with this ongoing project.

Remarks on collector.

Rudolf Schlechter (1872-1925) was a German botanist who wrote several works on orchids. He collected more than 12 thousands botanical specimens in South Africa between 1891 and 1898 ( Jessop 1964).
