We describe a distinctive new liverwort species of the genus Syzygiella, S. renifolia, from Neblina National Park, northern Brazil. It is the second neotropical taxon in Syzygiella subg. Cryptochila and the first record of this subgenus from the Guayana Highland. The new species stands out by broadly reniform leaves, not or very shortly decurrent leaf bases and entire female bracts and bracteoles.
