A new species of Maesobotrya Benth. (Phyllanthaceae) from the evergreen forest of Liberia is described. It is the second Maesobotrya Benth. species in western Africa (Upper Guinea). It resembles Maesobotrya pauciflora Pax and Maesobotrya oligantha O. Lachenaud & Breteler from west-central Africa (Lower Guinea) by its male and its female inflorescences that are both small and axillary. Illustrations are provided along with a distribution map. A preliminary assessment of its risk of extinction following the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria results in a status of “Endangered”.
