Abstract
Litsea gorayana Udayan & Robi sp. nova (Lauraceae) is described from Agasthyamala Biosphere Reserve of southern Western Ghats in Kerala, India. It resembles especially L. udayanii but differs from it by its shrubby habit, elliptic leaves 4.5–6.5 × 2–3 cm, thickly coriaceous, and with a silvery-glaucous abaxial surface, 4–7 pairs of lateral veins, involucral bracts that number 6, 2–4 umbels in brachyblast, and 7 flowers in an umbel.
