ABSTRACT
The article describes the plant species Geophila erythrocarpa from D.R. Congo and Zambia. This species is limited to dry, dense forests. It is similar to G. obvallata from which it differs in having red instead of blue or black fruits. G. erythrocarpa also shares the red-colored fruits with G. afzelli, but differs from this species in the united stipules, the fewer-flowered inflorescences with smaller bracts, and leaf coloration details. The species is provisionally assessed as endangered.
