The new species Salvia geminata, a dwarf shrublet from rocky coastal slopes of the Mahrah Region in Yemen, is described and illustrated. A remarkable feature of the species is that the upper thecae of the stamens are inflexed and connate, a condition that seems to be previously unknown in the genus. The apparently closely related S. areysiana, previously known only from the area of Jebel Areys in the Abyan Region, is reported also from the Hadramaut Region
