Faberia pinnatifida (Asteraceae; Cichorieae), a species occurring at high altitudes in Muli and Yanyuan Xian, Sichuan, China, is described as new based on morphological, palynological, and molecular phylogenetic data. The ITS data indicate that F. pinnatifida is closely related to F. glaucescens and F. thibetica, but it is easily distinguished from F. glaucescens by its scapigerous stem with only one or two leaves, and from F. thibetica in its much taller stature and elliptic to oblanceolate leaf blade. Faberia pinnatifida somewhat resembles F. ceterach in the scapigerous stem and pinnatifid leaves, but readily differs in its corymbiform synflorescence and nodding capitula bearing ca. 30 florets.
