Dipcadi krishnadevarayae B.R.P.Rao (Asparagaceae), a new species from the Sri Krishnadevaraya University campus, Anantapuramu of Andhra Pradesh, India, is described and illustrated.Â The novel species is distinct from all other species of Dipcadi in having distinctly 6-lobed stigma and shows close affinity to D. serotinum (L.) Medik. and D. montanum (Dalzell) Baker.Â It differs from both allies in having a combination of up to 50cm long linear leaves, 85cm long 16â€“24 flowered scapes, greenish-yellow flowers, dark green band outside the outer tepals, distinctly 6-lobed stigma and up to 10 seeds in each locule.ÂÂ
