Abstract: Mussaenda lancipetala X. F. Deng & D. X. Zhang, a new species of Rubiaceae from Yunnan Province, Southwestern China, is described and illustrated. The new species is characterized by its reverse herkogamous sexual system, its ovate-lanceolate corolla lobes with caudate apex, and corolla tube covered with sparse farinose pubescence, by which it is clearly distinguished from other species of Mussaenda.

Key words: Mussaenda, Mussaenda lancipetala X. F. Deng & D. X. Zhang, new species, pollen morphology, sexual system, taxonomy
