Corchorus hirtus L. is reported for the first time for Cuba. Its morphologic characteristics are described and compared with those of its closest relative C. siliquosus L. Up to now C. hirtus "malva té" by name, has only been collected in two Sugar Agroindustrial Complexes "Jesús Rabí" and "Cuba Libre" in the Matanzas Province, Cuba.
