Dubyaea atropurpurea Stebbins (Asteraceae: Cichorieae) is reported here for the first time from India. A brief description of the plant along with colour photographs, distribution map and a key to the Indian taxa of Dubyaea DC. is provided to facilitate easy identification, as well as to throw light on its phytogeography. Its taxonomic affinities and differences with closely related species are examined and discussed.
