Gleadovia ruborum Gamble & Prain (Orobanchaceae), a rare root parasite is recorded after a gap of 57 years from a new locality in Uttarakhand, western Himalaya. A total of four individuals were located in a shady moist forest of Abies pindrow-Quercus floribunda at Surkanda hill near Mussoorie. All the individual plants were growing on the roots of Rubus pedunculosus D. Don. The current communication provides an updated description, habitat characteristics and host species of Gleadovia ruborum.
