Abstract: Begonia coelocentroides Y. M. Shui & Z. D. Wei, a new species of the genus Begonia L. (sect. Platycentrum, Begoniaceae) from Yunnan, China, is described and illustrated. It resembles B. oreodoxa Chun & F. Chun in having parietal placentas at the upper part of the ovary, differing mainly in the female flowers with 5 tepals and the largest wing of the capsule being 20-22 mm long and ligulate.

Key words: Begonia, sect. Platycentrum, Begonia coelocentroides Y. M. Shui & Z. D. Wei, Begoniaceae, new species, Yunnan, China.
