In the course of a revision of the New World Ebenaceae for "Flora Neotropica" and some regional floras, specimens from ca. 100 herbaria have been studied. Diospyros reinae, a new species from Sonora (northwestern Mexico) is described here. The taxa D. rosei standl. and D. sinaloensis Blake are relegated into synonymy of D. sphaerantha standl. and D. sonorae standl., respectively.
