A new Hawaiian species of the Pacific genus Cyrtandra J. R. Forster & G. Forster, C. wagneri Lorence & Perlman, is described from the island of Hawai'i. It is unique in its combination of opposite leaves, cauligerous 12- to 25-flowered cymose inflorescences, deeply divided calyx that is actinomorphic, symmetrical in bud, and persistent in fruit, and calyx lobes that are lanceolate to linear-oblong, green, and internally puberulent distally. Due to its restricted distribution, small population size, and vulnerability to threats from feral animals, weeds, and stochastic events, it is considered to be critically endangered (CR) based on IUCN Red List criteria.
