Abstract: A new species of Mucuna from Costa Rica and Panama is described and illustrated. Mucuna monticola is mainly known from the highlands of the Cordilleras of Guanacaste, Tilaran, Central and Talamanca in Costa Rica, and in Panama in particular from the Chiriqui area. It is superficially similar to Mucuna mutisiana and M. killipiana, but it differs from both in multiple aspects of its morphology and is unique among Neotropical Mucuna in its pod, which is larger and longer with conspicuous irregular lamellae or reticulate-ridged, not constricted between the seeds.
