Elytraria acaulis (L.f.) Lindau (family Acanthaceae) is a perennial herb that is distributed in tropical Africa and Peninsular India. In India, this plant has been recorded from Northern Circar, Deccan, and Carnatic regions, on the eastern side of Peninsular India. We present here a new record from the Walayar Reserve Forest in Palakkad District, Kerala, which is the first known occurrence of this species from the western side of the peninsula. This species is added to the flora of Kerala state. © 2016 Check List and Authors.
