Abstract

A new species of Crotalaria from Meghalaya (Northeast India) is described and illustrated. The new species is assigned to Crotalaria section Calycinae based on affinities to C. sessiliflora and C. occulta. The distribution, ecology, and conservation status of C. meghalayensis are briefly discussed. We also provide evidence from molecular data and statistical analyses to authenticate the distinctiveness of the new species.
