It is the second species in the previously monospecific Bornmuellerantha Rothm. Morphological comparison and distinguishing characters are given. The new species is a smaller plant, has smaller flowers, and is found on high mountain slopes, in comparison to the generitype, B. aucheri (Boiss.) Rothm. Bornmuellerantha alshehbaziana is also contrasted with species of the related genus Odontites Ludw. The IUCN Red List category of Critically Endangered (CR) is proposed for the new species.
