Ichtyoselmis macrantha subsp. porphyrantha J. Y. Shen & Q. B. Gong a new subspecies from West Yunnan and North Myanmar is described. The new subspecies differs from Ichtyoselmis macrantha subsp. macrantha by its outer petals purplish red and with minute red-purple spots as well as transversal lines on the apical swollen margin, and inner petals white with red-purple spots. It is distributed well to the Southwest of the distribution area of I. macrantha subsp. macrantha.
