A recently discovered species is described from the Cobre mine site managed by Minera Panama S.A. in Colon Province (Donoso District) in central Panama near the Caribbean coast. The new species, Paradrymonia peltatifolia J. L. Clark & M. M. Mora (Gesneriaceae, Episcieae), is easily distinguished from congeners by the presence of peltate leaf blades, which is a vegetative characteristic that is rare in the Gesneriaceae.
