Aspidistra liboensis S.Z. He & J.Y. Wu sp. nova (Apiaceae), is described, illustrated, and compared with the morphologically similar species, and a diagnostic key is provided. The new species resembles A. longipetala but differs from it by having a long petiole (16–22 cm vs. 6–11 cm), a broadly campanulate perianth (vs. suburceolate) with at least 2 appendages at the inner base of lobe, and an enlarged stigma (2.5– 3.2 cm vs. 1–1.2 cm in diameter), with at least 16 adaxial grooves with purple papillate margins.
