Abstract

Indigofera santapaui Sanjappa is a little known endemic legume described from the northern Western Ghats. It is rediscovered and collected from other localities quite away from the type locality. This is found to be the only known species of Indigofera with yellow flowers. A brief description, image, distribution, and ecological notes have been provided to facilitate correct identification and to know its extent of distribution.
