Saurauia magentea Danet, sp. nov. recently discovered in the Indonesian province of Papua, is described and illustated. It is well characterized by its narrow, multinerved leaf blade and by its magenta flowers, solitary or fasciculate. It differs from the Neo-Guinean species in the section Ramiflorae (Diels) Gilg & Werderm. by having spinules and tiny prickles on the leaves.
