Assam, the second largest state of North-East India, is a treasure trove of orchids. In an orchid flora of Assam 53 species of Dendrobium were recorded during an intensive survey during 1996-2012. The present paper deals with Dendrobium species diversity and distribution in Assam. This attempt is the first step to correct taxonomic identifications; to work out currently accepted botanical names with flowering periods, habitats, and the distribution of the genus Dendrobium within this area. This paper also briefly describes and illustrates different species of Dendrobium available in Assam.
