The new species Combretum wilksii Jongkind from Gabon is described. The species belongs to Combretum Loefling sect. Combretum. The combination of the almost flat upper receptacle, the subcircular, glabrous petals ca. 2 mm long, and the glabrous disk distinguishes this species from all other Combretum species in Africa and, more particularly, from related Gabonese species such as C. scandens Liben, C. polyanthum Jongkind, and C. demeusii De Wildeman.
