Prunus dinabandhuana J.N. Mekrini & Biseshwori sp. nova (Rosaceae) is described and illustrated from Mao Makhan, Manipur, NE India. The species is phylogenetically closest to P. fordiana, but morphologically resembles especially P. zippeliana, differing from it by having axillary racemes, mucronulate leaf apex, 22–27 stamens, cup-shaped hypanthium, and different phenology. Based on molecular data (ITS), P. dinabandhuana belongs in the Laurocerasus clade, and that placement is corroborated by morphological characters of the flowers and inflorescences.
