In the present publication, the extended distribution of Ehretia longiflora Champ. ex Benth. (Ehretiaceae) on the mainland India (Neora Valley National Park, Sikkim-Darjeeling Himalaya) is reported and its conservation status is discussed. In India, the species was previously reported only from Hope Town in South Andaman. After a critical literature review, we found that the name needs to be lectotypified. An identification key to the species of Ehretia in India is also provided.
