Diospyros xolocotzii sp. n., a tree with edible fruits, is at least superficially similar to D. palmeri Eastw., from NE Mexico, and to D. bumelioides Standl., described from Belize. Only 20 plants could be located at the strongly disturbed type locality, and therefore the existence of this species seems to be seriously endangered.
