A new species and a new variety of Cimicifuga (Ranunculaceae) are described and illustrated. Cimicifuga austrokoreana, restricted to south-central Korea, is distinguished from the other species of the genus by its strongly arcuate inflorescence axis, much shorter pedicels, and three bracteoles, one at the base and the other two at the middle of the pedicel. Cimicifuga elata var. alpestris, found in southern Oregon in the United States, is distinguished from variety elata and the other members of the genus by its sheathing scales surrounding the lower nodes of the stem.
