A new species of Arecaceae, Wettinia donosoensis De Gracia & Grayum, from the Atlantic slope of Panama, is described and illustrated. It is readily distinguished from all other species of Wettinia Poepp. by the combination of small size (3–5 m); leaves with few (usually six or seven per side) pinnae; unbranched, lax inflorescences; and very long petals (in pistillate flowers, 25–30 mm). It is endemic to a small region in Donoso District, Colón Province, and its conservation status is assessed as Endangered.
