(AbstractGnidia glauca var. sisparensis (Thymelaeaceae) is a very rare and little-known plant, endemic to the southern part of the Western Ghats. It has been rediscovered after a lapse of 148 years from the Elival hills of the Muthikulam High Value Biodiversity Area, in the Western Ghats of Kerala. Detailed descriptions with colour photographs are provided along with a key to the Indian varieties of Gnidia glauca for the first time. The paper also discusses previous records regarding the occurrence of the taxon in the Western Ghats of India.)
