A revised classification of infraspecific taxa of Rubus lasiostylus (Rosaceae) is presented and three lectotypifications, i.e., Rubus lasiostylus, Rubus lasiostylus var. glabratus and Rubus eucalyptus are proposed. Rubus lasiostylus var. lasiostylus is reported for the first time from Arunachal Pradesh, India. It was previously known only from China. A detailed description and a field photograph of R. lasiostylus var. lasiostylus is provided for easy identification.
