A new species of Gesneriaceae, Chirita longicalyx J.M. Li & Y.Z. Wang, is described from Guilin, Guangxi province, China. It resembles C. depressawith its short peduncles, but is easily distinguished from the latter by its toothed calyx and densely bearded anthers. It is also morphologically similar to C. fimbrisepala, but differs from it in having longer lanceolate-line-bracts and shorter peduncles with flowers hidden by rosette leaves.
