Abstract: This paper describes and illustrates Magnolia wufengensis L. Y. Ma et L. R. Wang, a new species of Magnolia from Wufeng, in the southwest of Hubei Province, China. Its main characteristics are: a deciduous tree, tepals nine, the whole tepal inside and outside in even red color, long petioles, white pilose appressed densely along midvein beneath the leaf, reserved till leaf being old. These characteristics clearly show the difference from those of close-consanguinity species—M. sprengeri Pamp. and M. denudata Desr..
