Two new species of the genus Inti M. A. Blanco (Orchidaceae-Vandoideae-Maxillariinae) are described and illustrated based on herbarium material. Inti kefersteinioides Szlach. & Lipin´ska is recorded from Colombia and is characterized by an oblong-elliptic, acute, unlobed lip with a massive, very thick callus and oblong-lanceolate petals. Inti vanderwerffii Szlach. & Lipin´ska comes from Ecuador and its main flower character is the prominently 3-lobed lip in the apical fourth or fifth, with a ligulate-pentagonal, acute middle lobe, and prominent lip callus. A key for the determination of the seven species of the genus is provided.
