Adiantum alomae is described from eastern Cuba. It is characterized by pubescence on all parts of the leaves and its small size. Its habitat is also distinctive, occurring on limestone cliffs and walls, usually facing and very near the sea, receiving salt spray. A key is given to differentiate it from the related Cuban endemic Adiantum sericeum, and illustrations of the distinctive characteristics of both species are presented.
