Sumario: Two species have been confused under the name Epidendrum brenesii Schltr., both were used in the original description and drawing of the type.

The yellow-flowered species is described as Epidendrum sotoanum Karremans & Hágsater, in honor of the late Mexican botanist Miguel Ángel Soto Arenas.
