Bryoerythrophyllum zanderi C. Feng, X.-M. Shao & J. Kou, is described and illustrated as a new species from Tibet, China. It differs from congeners mainly by the combination of a undeveloped sclerodermis, oval to short-triangular or short ovate-lanceolate leaves with small apiculus apices, broadly channeled ventrally in the upper part of leaves, strongly revolute and papillose-crenulate leaf margins, usually a long plication in upper part on one side of leaf and a very strong costa usually greatest width above mid-leaf. This species is compared with similar species and its ecology is discussed.
