A new species, Codonanthe gibbosa Rossini & Chautems, is described from remnants of the Atlantic rainforest in central Espírito Santo in Brazil. It differs from the congeneric taxa by the filiform stems, small, glabrous leaves (except margin) and strongly gibbose corolla lacking brown spots in the yellow throat. An illlustration of Codonanthe gibbosa and an identification key to the species of Codonanthe (Mart.) Hanst. occurring in Espírito Santo and nearby areas are provided.
