A new species of Senecio from the Anti Atlas of Morocco, S. kerdousianus (Asteraceae: Senecioneae), is described and illustrated. The new species can be distinguished from other species of Senecio growing in the Anti Atlas in their discoid capitula, subentire lower leaves with coarse sinuate dentate margins, and cauline and upper leaves with broad auriculate bases. A key to related species from SW Morocco, south of the High Atlas, is provided.
