Cremanthodium weixiense (Asteraceae, Senecioneae), a new species from northwestern Yunnan, China, is described and illustrated. The new species belongs to C. ser. Calcicola by having palmate veins, discoid capitula and leaflike, herbaceous phyllaries. It is readily distinguishable in this series by having dissected leaves. It is somewhat similar to C. pinnatisectum within C. ser. Campanulata in the dissected leaves and the discoid capitula, but differs by the suborbicular (vs. subreniform) basal leaves with deeply cordate (vs. subtruncate) bases and very narrow (vs. obviously divergent) sinuses, the presence (vs. absence) of conspicuously sheathed petiolar base of stem leaves, the broadly cylindrical (vs. campanulate) involucres, and the leaflike, herbaceous (vs. petaloid, membranous) phyllaries.
