A new species of Populus is described from the Sierra of Manantlán, state of Jalisco, México: Populus guzmanantlensis (sect. Populus, subsect. Tomentosae). It seems to be closely related to P. simaroa Rzedowski and P. monticola T.S. Brandegee, but is clearly different because of its larger number of flowers in the female aments and its smaller and glabrous fruits.
