Senecio iscoensis or Aetheolaena senecioidesis[verification needed] is a species of Senecio in the Asteraceae family that is found only in subtropical and tropical dry shrubland in Ecuador. It is threatened by habitat loss.

It is known from three collections in the central and northern Andes. First recorded by Luis Sodiro, probably at the Hacienda Isco, it is also recorded from the foothills of Volcán Antisana and probably inside the reserve of the Antisana Ecological Reserve,[1] a privately owned reserve that preserves the native flora and fauna of the Northern Andean páramo.[3]

S. icoensis might be a synonym of S. antisanae.[4]
