The new species Jasminum cuneatum Jongkind (Oleaceae) from western Africa is described here. It differs from J. paucinervium Benth., a species that occurs in the same area and that is the most easily confused, by its cuneate and not rounded or cordate leaf base and the absence of pit domatia. It differs from J. kwangense Liben from Central Africa by the more papery leaves without abundant glandular dots and pit domatia on their lower surface.
