Mitreola liuyanii, a new species from Guizhou Province, China, are described and illustrated in this study. Morphologically, it is most similar to M. pingtaoi but can be distinguished from the latter in the characteristics of leaves arranged in a basal rosette or clustered at the stem or branch apex, shorter stem internodes and petioles, smaller narrowly oblanceolate leaf blades with ciliate margin, narrowly lanceolate bracts and glabrous capsules.
