  • Title
    Angiosperms of India known only by type collection
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The paper throws light on the little-known angiosperms of India.  The present study has revealed that a total of 60 taxa have not been relocated after their discovery and are still known only from their type collections/localities.  For each taxon, details such as the current accepted botanical name with authority, family name, habit with a few salient features, habitat, type locality or distribution with altitude and the collection period have been briefly provided.  These taxa are alphabetically enumerated in this paper with the hope that these may be relocated in future floristic explorations.
