Abstract

Psychotria perotensis Castillo-Campos, belonging to subgenus Heteropsychotria Steyermark (Rubiaceae, Psychotrieae), is described and illustrated as a new species from the region of La Cortadura, Coatepec, on the eastern slopes of the volcano Cofre de Perote, Veracruz, Mexico. This species is related to P. phanerandra (Standley & Steyermark) Lorence and P. galeottiana (M. Martens) C. M. Taylor & Lorence; however, it differs from these species in its larger leaves and inflorescence.
