The results of preliminary research on Colombian species of the orchid genus Crocodeilanthe are presented. Records of two species previously not reported from this country are provided. Forty-one new species are described and illustrated. An updated key for the identification of Colombian Crocodeilanthe species is presented. Additionally, it is proposed to transfer Stelis rostriformis Zambrano & Solano and Stelis uvaegelata L. E. Matthews to Crocodeilanthe.
