A new species of Gesneriaceae from eastern Nepal, Didymocarpus nepalensis Bh.Adhikari & Mich.Möller is described and illustrated. It is morphologically most closely allied to D. cinereus D.Don but differs by its well-developed stem, the absence of basal leaves and less deeply divided calyx. A detailed description, colour photographs, line drawings are provided and the morphological differences of relevant species are discussed.
