In Nepal six species ofRhynchosia occur that we recognize as valid: two new species,R. harae andR. nepalensis besides four previously described ones,R. falconeri, R. himalensis, R. minima andR. pseudo-cajan. A key to the species and related comparative descriptions are presented with illustrations of taxonomically important characters.
