Polyalthia crassa described by R. Parker based on his Burmese collection and of C.E. Parkinson’s from Andaman Islands during 1920s was never recollected. The present report concerns its recent recollection from North Andaman Islands with its updated nomenclature, detailed description and distribution notes. A note on its distinction with P. andamanica is added for taxonomic clarity.
