Dear members,

I found these chenopodium species growing in a field.... The first one i guess is C. album, not sure of the rest 2... Could any of these 2 be C. glaucum or C. foliosum? Had not seen this red chenopodium. Please if any1 can help me in the identification of these 2 species (Pic 2 (DSC00129) and 3 (DSC00131)) and confirm the pic 1 which i propose as C. album.

Thanks,

Mrs. Puri

I am sure that you will get the answer. As alternative you can try to Chenopodium list. Please send email with your query to

cheno...@iastate.edu

(And please share the outcome with EfloraIndia group.)

This should be Chenopodium album most probably.

Ajinkya ji
Your answer has really brought in a new dimension to identification of this plant and possibly a few more. Although Chandan betu in Bengali refers to Chenopodium album, but Chandan batwa in Maharashtra refers to Atriplex hortensis. The plant looks much closer to that, but only close up of fruiting branch will clinch issue.

Nanu Puri ji,

To me also all the three pictures appear to be of Chenopodium album. This is a complex species with several infra-specific forms and semi-cultivated varieties, probably due to natural hybridization. Different cytotypes (two diploids: wide-leaved and narrow-leaved forms; and an hexaploid) said to occur in semi-cultivated forms in India (Gangopadhyay et al., 2002), thus making the taxon more complex with variable phenotypes. The coloration of leaves is also not uncommon, i suppose.
They are not matching to C. glaucum or C. foliosum.

I did see other images provided in the link below. These plants are quite strange. We are dealing with this group now, but the Indian Chenopodium album growing on the plains are very poorly known. 
Best wishes,
A.
