Englerocharis blanca-leoniae is described and illustrated, and its relationship to the closely related E. peruviana is discussed. As a result, Englerocharis now includes five species, all except the latter are narrowly endemic to Peru and known from single collections. The generic limit is expanded to accommodate the new species, and a key to the five known species of the genus is presented.
