Maesa kurzii Mez (Primulaceae) is rediscovered from Namdapha National Park of Arunachal Pradesh in India, after a gap of nearly 150 years, after the initial collection of type material from Patkoye Mountain. The present collection extends the distributional range of the species to the northeastern region of the country. A detailed taxonomic account is provided to facilitate easy identification. The name has also been lectotypified here.
