Primulina yulinensis sp. nov. (Gesneriaceae), a new species from the limestone area in Guangxi, China is here described and illustrated. P. yulinensis is similar to P. hezhouensis (W. H. Wu & W. B. Xu) W. B. Xu & K. F. Chung, but it differs from the latter by its smaller and margin lobed leaves, long pedicel, larger flower and 2-lipped limb.
