A new species of Oberonia Lindl. (Orchidaceae) from the Similipal forest, Odisha is described here. A slender inflorescence, usually longer than the narrowly ensiform leaves; an ovate, acute, unlobed lip with laciniate margin, are important characters of this species to separate it from allied species of Oberonia.
