During the review of the Lamiaceae of Oaxaca, specimens of the genus Salvia were found with morphology similar to S. pannosa, from the sect. Scorodoniae. However, the new species can be distinguished from S. pannosa by being branching herbs up to 0.5 m tall, with stems and upperside of the leaf hirsute, rachis, calyx and pedicel covered with non-glandular simple trichomes, and persistent bracts, blue, acuminate apex and tomentose abaxial face with simple non-glandular trichomes.
