ABSTRACT
Physalis waterfallii (Solanaceae) is described. It is characterized by having long pedicels, a 5-angled fruiting calyx, and long calycinian lobes in flower and fruit that reach up to 1 cm long. The diagnostic characters and the distribution pattern of the new species are discussed and compared to P. orizabae and P. mcvaughii, the most similiar species. A distribution map for the three taxa and the botanical illustration of P. waterfallii are also included.
