Previous spectroscopic studies have confirmed 160 LMSs in the 25 Orionis stellar group (25 Ori), which is the most prominent overdensity of Orion OB1a. Nonetheless, the current census of the 25 Ori members is estimated to be lower than 50% complete, leaving a large number of members to be still confirmed. We retrieved 172 low-resolution stellar spectra in Orion OB1a observed as ancillary science in the SDSS-III/BOSS survey, for which we classified their spectral types and determined physical parameters. To determine memberships, we analyzed the Hα emission, LiIλ6708 absorption, and NaIλλ8183,8195 absorption as youth indicators in stars classified as M type. We report 50 new LMSs spread across the 25 Orionis, ASCC18, and ASCC20 stellar groups with spectral types from M0 to M6, corresponding to a mass range of 0.10≤m/M≤0.58. This represents an increase of 50% in the number of known LMSs in the area and a net increase of 20% in the number of 25 Ori members in this mass range. Using parallax values from the Gaia DR1 catalog, we estimated the distances to these three stellar groups and found that they are all co-distant, at 338±66pc. We analyzed the spectral energy distributions of these LMSs and classified their disks into evolutionary classes. Using H-R diagrams, we found a suggestion that 25 Ori could be slightly older than the other two observed groups in Orion OB1a. Description: The V, R, and I photometry used in this work was obtained from the Centro de Investigaciones de Astronomia (CIDA) Deep Survey of Orion (CDSO) catalog (Downes et al. 2014, Cat. J/MNRAS/444/1793), which was constructed by coadding the multi-epoch optical observations from the CIDA Variability Survey of Orion (CVSO; Briceno et al. 2005, Cat. J/AJ/129/907). The sensitivity limits of the CDSO covers the Low-Mass Star (LMS) and Brown Dwarf (BD) population of 25 Ori and its surroundings within the region 79.7°≲α≲82.7° and 0.35°≲δ≲3.35°. The limiting magnitude of the CDSO photometry in this region is Ilim=22 and the completeness magnitude is Icom=19.6 (Downes et al. 2014, Cat. J/MNRAS/444/1793), enough to ensure an I-band detection even for the faintest targets of our spectroscopic sample (I~17.0). Additionally, we used the u, g, r, i, and z photometry from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) catalog (Finkbeiner et al. 2004AJ....128.2577F; Ahn et al. 2012, Cat. V/139). These values are listed in Table1. The Z, Y, J, H, and Ks near-infrared photometry used in this study was carried out by Petr-Gotzens et al. (2011Msngr.145...29P) as part of the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) science verification surveys (Arnaboldi et al. 2010Msngr.139....6A). The 5σ limiting magnitudes of the VISTA survey of the Orion star-forming region are Z=22.5, Y=21.2, J=20.4, H=19.4, and Ks=18.6, which are enough to have VISTA photometry even for the faintest objects in our spectroscopic sample (J~15.0). Additionally, we used near-infrared photometry from the 2MASS catalog (Cutri et al. 2003, Cat. II/246) and mid-infrared photometry from IRAC-Spitzer (Hernandez et al. 2007, Cat. J/ApJ/671/1784) and the AllWISE catalog (Cutri et al. 2013, Cat. II/328). This infrared photometry is listed in Table1. The spectra used in this paper were obtained as part of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS; Dawson et al. 2013AJ....145...10D), which is one of the four main surveys of SDSS (York et al. 2000AJ....120.1579Y) in its third phase (SDSS-III; Eisenstein et al. 2011AJ....142...72E). The BOSS spectrograph has plates with 1000 fibers of 2'' diameter spanning a field of view of 3.0° in diameter and covering a wavelength range from 3560Å to 10400Å with a resolution of R=1560 at 3700Å and R=2650 at 9000Å (Gunn et al. 2006AJ....131.2332G; Smee et al. 2013AJ....146...32S).
