A new species of Argyreia (Convolvulaceae) from Thailand is described and illustrated, and it is placed in relation to the known Thai species by inserting it into the key to Argyreia from the Flora of Thailand account. Argyreia suddeeana can be recognised by its unusually large, pendant flowers, arranged in capitate inflorescences with overlapping pinkish bracts, and a rose-pink bell-shaped corolla with flaring limb.
