Begonia pachypoda L. Kollmann & Peixoto (Begoniaceae), a new species known only from Alegre in the Atlantic Forest of the state of Espírito Santo in Brazil, is described. We established that it is currently cultivated and misidentified under the name Begonia leathermaniae O'Reilly & Kareg. Description, illustration and comments about geographic distribution of this new species are provided. It is morphologically related to Begonia aconitifolia A. DC. and Begonia platanifolia Schott. The name Begonia leathermaniae must be used only for another species from Bolivia.
