Recent expeditions to the northwestern slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes and preliminary work on a revision of Cremosperma (Gesneriaceae) have resulted in the discovery of a new species. The new species, Cremosperma verticillatum, is distinguished from other congeners by the presence of evenly spaced leaves in a whorled arrangement on elongate erect shoots, decumbent stems, and elongate petioles.
