Graffenrieda glandulosa can be distinguished from other species in the genus by the 3-nerved leaves with barbate nerve bases on the abaxial surface, the calyptrate calyx, and the short connective appendages covered with glandular trichomes. This new species has been collected only in the western tip of the state of Acre, Brazil, near the border with Peru.

Graffenrieda glandulosa distingue-se das demais espécies do gênero pelas folhas 3-nervadas e com as bases das nervuras barbadas na face abaxial, pelo cálice caliptrado e pelos apêndices do conectivo muito curtos e cobertos por tricomas glandulares. Esta nova espécie foi coletada apenas no extreme oeste do estado do Acre, próximo à fronteira com o Peru.
