We report the discovery of HAT-P-38b, a Saturn-mass exoplanet transiting the V=12.56 dwarf star GSC 2314-00559 on a P = 4.6404 d circular orbit. The host star is a 0.89 solar masses late G-dwarf, with solar metallicity, and a radius of 0.92 solar radii. The planetary companion has a mass of 0.27 Jupiter masses, and radius of 0.82 Jupiter radii. HAT-P-38b is one of the closest planets in mass and radius to Saturn ever discovered.
