Sedum neovolcanicum is described as new species, based on plants collected in the western portion of the geographical region known as the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, in the states of Jalisco and Michoacán. The new taxon resembles Sedum bourgaei Hemsl., S. tortuosum Hemsl. and S. multiflorum R. T. Clausen in possessing white or rosy-white flowers. However, it is distinguished from these species by its habit, number of flowers per inflorescence, unbranched inflorescence, and petals and sepals length.
