A new species from Venezuela, Setaria carinata S. Nozawa & Pensiero, is described and illustrated. Setaria carinata differs from closely related species by the number of bristles (nine to 10 per spikelet), the ornamentation of the strongly carinate upper lemma, and its narrow lower palea. An identification key to discriminate between similar species is presented.
