Affirmitive Prashant.
  H.plumosa generally flowers from Nov. to March, whereas H.verticillatus [Spiny Bottle Brush] flowers in January. Also H.verticillatus is very spiny and gives a nasty poke if handled. Sending you some photographs taken at my farm for comparison. [Will send the photographs of H.veticillatus separately].

Dear Dinesh,
I am also waiting for more comments. I think in case of H.plumosa the axillary spines are shorter (around 2cm) as compared to H. verticillata (around 4 cm).

Prashant

... many thanks for sharing this query, Prashant ... if it turns out to be H. plumosa, it would become tricky to differentiate from H. verticillatus.
Regards.

Before Anurag Ji provided us KEY to Haplanthodes in the other thtread I referred this post in the same thread, comparing it with Dinesh Ji's post in another thread. At that time I agreed with Neil Sir. Presently I have slight hesitations. not much to reject the probability.

Dinesh Ji's uploads clearly shows sepal character, to me it was/is  H. plumosa. In this thread the 2nd pic shows sepals, but it is not clear if those are plumose or not.

Now, Neil Sir has identified and uploaded all three, H. verticillatus, H. neilgherryensis and H. plumosa, in different threads.

In the pictures in this thread I see some similarity to another thread where Neil Sir himself identified the species as H. neilgherryensis - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/7eR38HhhDDI/HM0wppVFcMUJ, specially in calyx in rk_for-id_060_3.jpg.

Finally, I think we can reject verticillatus and tentaculatus undoubtedly.
Since cladodes in this set of pics are not glandular hairy we have no other option (as per latest KEY by Anurag Ji). Neil Sir is always correct.

Thank you
Regards
surajit
