Under the conditions of priority of publication, the species of Disperis (Orchidaceae) hitherto known as D. bolusiana Schltr. is correctly cited as D. bolusiana Schltr. ex Bolus, and the circumstances leading to this decision are explained. The following changes to the status of three species of Disperis are made: D. stenoglossa Schltr. is placed in synonymy under D. woodii Bolus; D. macrocorys Rolfe is reduced to a subspecies of D. bolusiana Schltr. ex Bolus; and D. circumflexa (L.)

Volgens die prioriteit van publikasie moet die spesie van Disperis (Orchidaceae) bekend as D. bolusiana Schltr., eerder as D. bolusiana Schltr. ex Bolus beskou word. Die agtergrond wat tot hierdie besluit lei, is verduidelik. Die volgende verandering van status van drie spesies van Disperis word voorgestel: D. stenoglossa Schltr. word as sinoniem onder D. woodii Bolus geplaas; D. macrocorys Rolfe word tot die rang van subspesie van D. bolusiana Schltr. ex Bolus verlaag en D. circumflexa (L.) Our. & Schinz var. aemula Sch ltr. word tot subspesie verhoog.
