ABSTRACT- Taxonomic revision of the genus Kobresia Willd. (Cyperaceae), in India, is presented in this paper. Two new species viz., Kobresia vibhae Jana, R.C.Srivast & Manas Bhaumik sp. nova., and Kobresia paramjitii Jana, H.J. Noltie, R.C. Srivast & Ambarish Mukherjee sp. nova., are described and 3 new records for India are reported here.
