Charybdis glaucophylla (Asparagaceae), a new species from Sardinia, is described and illustrated. It is a diploid specieswith 2n = 20 chromosomes growing along the rocky coast, sandy dunes and mountain top in the south-western part of theisland. Within the genus, this species results taxonomically well isolated and differentiated due to relevant morphologicaland phenological features, such as the leaves wide and short, very rigid and glaucous-pruinose, as well as the very latefoliation (winter). It shows only some relationships with C. pancration for the whitish bulb tunics and the diploidchromosome complement, and with C. maura and C. aphylla due to the glaucous leaves.
