Agarista villarrealana sp. n., from the Sierra Madre del Sur, Jalisco, México, is described. The species is a member of section Agarista and is easily distinguished from the other species of Agarista known from Mexico because it is a rhizomatous shrub less than 1 m tall with coriaceous leaves and red flowers. It is probably related to Agarista pulchella Cham. ex G. Don var. pulchella from southeastern Brazil.
