This paper presents the description of a new species for science - Silene badzhalensis (Caryophyllaceae), belonging to the section Graminiformes Lazkov, from the Badzhal range in the southern part of the Russian Far East. This species is characterized by loose, densely branched caudex, few flowered (3-5 flowers) raceme, long thin pedicels, narrow white or slightly pinkish tinged petals with two coronal scales, and bright glabrous tubular-clavate calyx with 10 greenish veins, slightly swollen after flowering. It occurs at the ledges and crevices of rock outcrops within the forest belt (about 700 m above sea level).
