Abstract:
Ipomoea discoidea is described and illustrated as a new species from the states of Guerrero and Jalisco, Mexico. The new species shares close affinities with I. macdonaldii and I. lottiae, and is a creeper with widened, disk-shaped receptacle, fleshy calyx, hypocrateriform white corolla, exserted stamens and style, and seeds with long trichomes on the margins. Ipomoea discoidea grows in deciduous and subdeciduous forest.
