Macbrideola spinosispora is described as a species new to science based on material collected in a lowland tropical rainforest in Costa Rica. This new species can be distinguished from other members of the genus by the violaceous color of the sporotheca, the loose and flexuous capillitium and the conspicuously spiny spores. Images are provided of diagnostic morphological features.
