Hygrophila urquiolae is described in detail and compared with the second Cuban species of the same genus, H. costata. It appears to be a taxonomically isolated species without close known relatives. At present it is known from a single locality in Matanzas Province, close to the northern coast of Cuba, where it belongs to a wetland community with clear affinities to the flora of Florida. As a specimen of unknown provenance, found in a Cuban herbarium, also represents the new species, one may assume that it occurs in other similar habitats of the island as well.
