ABSTRACT
Arbutus madrensis, from the states of Sinaloa, Durango, Jalisco and Nayarit is described. The new species is a common tree in pine and pine-oak forests of the Sierra Madre Occidental between 2400 and 2800 m. It can be distinguished from other madrones by its checkered and persistent bark present even on the last twigs, and the large,, widely ovate to elliptic leaves with ferruginous, non glandular pubescence.
