The new species is most similar to C. longii Orel & Luu, but differs in having young branches sparsely pubescent, larger leaf blades, more secondary veins, flowers 8 ‒ 9 cm in diameter with more petals, longer stamens, and shorter styles. Photographs, an illustration, vernacular names, and a preliminary conservation assessment are provided.
