Aloe gautieri J.-P. Castillon & Nusb. (Xanthorrhoeaceae, Asphodeloideae), a new species from the northeastern coast of Madagascar is described and illustrated. The new species is morphologically closely related to Aloe fragilis Lavranos & Röösli but differs in having paler flowers, more elongated racemes, ungrouped cauline leaves forming no compact rosette. The distribution, ecology and conservation status of the new species are presented along with a line drawing and colour pictures.
