Lysionotus gamosepalus var. biflorus, a new variety from northeastern India is described and illustrated with photographs. Information on its ecology is provided. The new taxon is morphologically similar to L. gamosepalus var. gamosepalus but can be easily distinguished by a combination of characters such as un-branched pair-flowered cyme, hairy corolla and two coiled staminodes.
