We present the first record of Boeica multinervia (Gesneriaceae) for India, based on specimens from Sagalee, Arunachal Pradesh, India. The species is easily recognized due to its short internodes, stoloniferous habit, and glandular pubescent rosette leaves and inflorescence. Boeica multinervia is so far known only from (Xizang) China. A brief description along with additional notes and photographs are provided.
