Two species of Valeriana of apparently very restricted distribution are described as new. V. emmanuelii, collected in two localities of the southern extreme of the municipality of Morelia, Michoac�n, is related to V. retrorsa Fern. and to V. densiflora Benth. V. zamoranensis belongs to the series Ceratophyllae and is only known from the highest part of Cerro Zamorano; it seems to be related to V. zapotecana Barrie and to V. otomiana Barrie.
