In this paper, a new hybrid species, Pulsatilla x yanbianensis H.Z. Lv, is named and described from the Yanbian area of Jilin Province in China. Molecular data confirm that this taxon is a result of natural hybridization between P. dahurica and P. cernua. As intermediate and mosaic phenotypes are expected for an interspecific hybrid, the leaves of P. x yanbianensis are fully expanded at the anthesis, resembling one of the parental species, P. daurica. However, the hybrid taxon is distinct from P. daurica by having reddish violet sepals and sterile fruits. Pulsatilla x yanbianensis also resembles the other parental species, P. cernua, in that it has dark red sepals and styles. The new hybrid, however, can be distinguished from P. cernua because it has leaf margins with short hairs and fully expanded leaves at the anthesis.
KeyWords: Pulsatilla x yanbianensis, Pulsatilla cernua, Pulsatilla dahurica
