AN interesting plant was discovered in Assam in 1883 by the late Gustav Mann. Later, Mr. I. H. Burkill found it in Abor Hill during his expedition in 1911 and 1912 (Burkill, No. 37363 and 37742). After a lapse of twenty-two years, Dr. N. L. Bor again found the plant in April 1933 at a place called Painjuli, Aka Hills. Mann's sheets were examined at Kew by the late C. B. Clarke, who thought this to be a new species of Zanonia.
