Recent field expeditions and preliminary work on revising Drymonia and closely related genera have resulted in the discovery of a new plant species from Colombia. The new species, Drymonia droseroides (Gesneriaceae), is an unbranched terrestrial herb with reflexed spatulate calyx lobes that are covered with gland-tipped trichomes. It is only known from the type locality in the Cerro El Inglés Nature Reserve in the Serranía de los Paraguas, a mountain range on the border of the departments of Chocó and Valle del Cauca.
