Ruellia saccata Schmidt-Lebuhn & E. Tripp, a new species of Acanthaceae from Beni, Bolivia, with a highly distinctive corolla morphology, is described as new to science. The novelty resembles and is related to R. brevifolia (Pohl) C. Ezcurra, but differs in the presence of a pronounced corolla pouch, a longer corolla with a narrower orifice, and a spreading to procumbent habit. Its differences from and similarities to other species in the genus are also discussed, and an updated key to the red-flowered Bolivian species of Ruellia L. is presented.

Ruellia saccata Schmidt-Lebuhn & E. Tripp, una nueva especie de Acanthaceae de Beni, Bolivia, que tiene una corola morfológicamente muy distintiva, es descrita como nueva para la ciencia. La nueva especie se asemeja y está relacionada a R. brevifolia (Pohl) C. Ezcurra, pero se distingue por tener una corola más larga con un orificio más estrecho y una bolsa pronunciada en la misma, así como por presentar un hábito extendido y procumbente. Las diferencias y semejanzas de la nueva especie a otras en el género también son discutidas, y una clave actualizada para las especies bolivianas de Ruellia L. de flores rojas es presentada.
