Dear all,

I found this plant in a wet forest of Nilgiris. The forest type is locally called Shola. Is this Rubiaceae shrub, Pavetta breviflora? The characteristic feature of this plant is the presence of dark spots in leaves. Locally the plant is common.

The pictures here at BIOTIK shows similar plant.

Leaf: 10 cm long
Flower: c.1 cm across

Date: 19 June 2013
Place: Longwood Shola, Kotagiri, TN
Alt.: 1990 m asl
