Stellaria porsildii is described as a new species. It is diploid and presently known only from isolated populations on Signal Peak in the Pinos Altos Range, Grant Co., New Mexico, and Chiricahua Mountains, Cochise Co., Arizona. The new species differs from S. longipes in having large solitary flowers in the axils of normal green leaves. The leaves are linear to linear-lanceolate, 27-35 mm long.
