Sarcopyramis subramanii Nayar (Melastomataceae) has only been collected once in India, from the Lushai Hills in Mizoram state in 1926. We found this species 94 years after the collection of the type material. We present a detailed taxonomic description, photographs, and a map of the distribution of this species. A comparison of S. subramanii with the allied S. nepalensis Wall. is provided to facilitate its identification.
