A new species of Carex (Cyperaceae) is described from western South America. Carex pleioneura (sect. Foetidae) occurs in central Chile and west-central Argentina, where it grows on rocky slopes, among rocks bordering streams, and in mountain meadows (vegas). A new combination in South American Carex. C. longii var. meridionalis (sect. Ovales), is also made here.
