ABSTRACT
Calathea carolineae H. Kenn., sp. nov., known only from two collections in Parque Nacional Cusuco, Cortes Department, Honduras, is described as new for inclusion in Flora Mesoamericana. Calathea carolineae differs from C. atropurpurea Matuda and C. matudae H. Kenn. in lacking claviculate bracteoles and the non-recurved bract margins; and differs from C. micans (L. Mathieu) Körn. by the minutely pilose adaxial leaf surface and deciduous habit.
