Petrocodon rubiginosus Y.G. Wei & R.L. Zhang, sp. nov., from Guangxi of South China, is described and illustrated with photographs. The new species is morphologically similar to Pet. hechiensis, but can be easily distinguished by a combination of characters, especially in its petioles, peduncles and pedicels covered with densely ferruginous pilose hairs.
