Several visits were made in the district for the floristic survey during 2013-2016. The author collected an interesting and novel plant specimen from Chalisgaon Dist. Jalgaon. The identification and authentification has been done with the standard literatures; different floras, research papers viz., Taxonomic and morphologic studies in family Convolvulaceae of southern peninsular India. It was identified as Ipomoea parasitica (Kunth.) G. Don. It is a new world species and was collected for the first time in India from Shimoga District, Karnataka. The species was not recorded in Khandesh region so far, hence the present collection of Ipomoea parasitica (Kunth.) G.
