Paris stigmatosa Shu-dong Zhang (Melanthiaceae) is described and illustrated from northeastern Yunnan, China. The new species was found growing in wet habitats under bamboo thickets on Yaoshan Mountain of Qiaojia County. The new species is very similar to P. polyphylla Smith, from which it differs by having fewer subsessile leaves (four to six), 3-merous flowers, and stigmas 21–34 mm long. A key to the new species and sympatric species is given, and their similarities are discussed.
