A new species, Agave oteroi, is described from the Rio Hondo and side drainages near the Calapa bridge along Mexico Federal Highway 135D on the border of Puebla and Oaxaca, Mexico. Its vegetative and flower morphology place this species in the group Marginatae. Agave oteroi is compared to A. kerchovei. A. quiotepecensis, and A. titanota of the Marginatae. The addition of Agave oteroi brings the total number of taxa in the Marginatae to 30; the group ranges from Texas throughout much of mainland Mexico into Guatemala.
