Alsobia chiapensis, a new species from Chiapas, Mexico is described and illustrated. It differs from its 2 congeners by a relatively larger corolla and shorter limb; linear-lanceolate calyx lobes; and petiole less than a third of the length of the leaf blade. The new species shares characteristics found in other species of Alsobia such as fimbriate margins on the corolla lobes, and stolons.
