The genus Otostylis (Orchidaceae) is one of the lesser known genera in the Zygopetalum alliance, which has had a problematic taxonomic history. Otostylis consists of four species distributed in South America and Trinidad. The purpose of this paper is to provide a synopsis of the genus, with descriptions of the four species and keys for their identification. Otostylis paludosa is resurrected from previous synonomy under O. lepida and reported as a new record for the genus in Peru, occurring as a dominant herb in bog wetlands of the Department of Madre de Dios.
