    Description
    Achyranthes coynei Santapau (Amaranthaceae) is a rare species from India and was identified endemic to Maharashtra state. It was first reported by Santapau in 1949 from Khandala, Maharashtra. Profusely branched shrubby habit (3.0-3.5 m tall), first erect, later patent, finally deflexed nature of flowers on the inflorescence, opened flowers spreading up to 2.0cm in diameter and its rosy-purplish colour are the key feature which differentiate this from other species of Achyranthes. The taxon has been reported from 3 new localities from Belgaum district. The present investigation reports the extended distribution of A. coynei to Karnataka State
