Abstract

Dipcadi concanense (Dalzell) Baker a highly threatened species is endemic to the Konkan region of Maharashtra State, India.  Now, it is recorded from a new locality in Goa State, extending its distribution further southwards.  A total of 10 patches of a large population were identified in the new locality with an area of occupancy of about 14,400sq.m.
