Manfreda bulbulifera, a new species from Mexcalcingo, municipio Colotlipa, Guerrero, Mexico, is described and illustrated. The new species belongs to the group of Manfreda guttata, which is characterized by the presence of a reduced perianth tube, linear to lanceolate leaves and small-sized plants. Manfreda bulbulifera shows similarities with M. guttata (Jacobi et Bouché) Rose, M. littoralis García-Mend., A. Castañeda et S. Franco and M. rubescens Rose. The new species differs from the others by its compressed corms, bulblets at the distal portion of the corm, very small perianthal tube, filiform segments, stamens and style longer than the tube and obclavate ovary.
