Briggsia leiophylla, a new species of Gesnericeae from southern Guizhou, China, is here described and illustrated. It is morphologically similar to B. longipes (Hemsl. ex Oliv.) Craib, but can be easily distinguished by only one flower per cyme (rare two), brightly yellow and nearly glabrous corolla, anthers thecae confluent.
