Abstract

Corallodiscus cooperi (Craib) B.L. Burtt is reported here as a new record for India.  The IUCN Red-listed Vulnerable species was earlier known only from Bhutan and has been collected for the first time from outside the country, from Zemithang Valley of Arunachal Pradesh.  A detailed description along with images and notes are provided to facilitate its easy identification.
