Main Article Content
In the course of floristic explorations in the hill station of Matheran of Maharashtra, authors collected an interesting specimen of a Litsea. After critical examination and comparing specimens with all available collections in various herbaria including Kew, the tree was identified as Litsea oleoides (Meissn.) Hook.f., an endemic species of wet evergreen forests in SouthIndia, hitherto not reported from Maharashtra. Same is reported here with notes on its distribution and phenology.
