Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise please.
Some earlier relevant feedback:
Lindernia hyssopioides, perhaps.
|I too think that this is Lindernia hyssopioides, as Vijay suggested.|
I would like to get few more information on the plant, if available. Whether the stamens are bearded. Whether the fruiting pedicel is deflexed or not.
Please refer the attached publication.
Feedback from another thread:
"................ Instead, I try to figure out what is Dopatrium lobelioides Benth.
We have two posts in eFI -
2) Dinesh Ji - https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/indiantreepix/kkMwF8g8WaE and there is Flickr a/c - http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Dopatriumlobelioides&w=91314344@N00&m=tags&z=m
There is a 3rd post. by me, irrelevant here, i have already posted info-plates in this thread.
One more time i paste the url of what efI has labelled as Ilysanthes hyssopioides (L.) Benth. - https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/indiantreepix/K19PuNKreBg.
I pray Puttaraju Ji's permission for modifying (magnifying) part of his uploaded photographs. And i attach the same herewith. I also attach relevant entries from Icones and Flora Indica (on Gratiola lobelioides).
The DATA I find from all these documents (excluding illustrations plates of Icones, Coromandel) -
The post at https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en#!topic/indiantreepix/K19PuNKreBg is surely Dopatrium lobelioides Benth. (assuming Dinesh Ji's and Prashant Ji's posts are correctly identified, though have some doubt over one photograph in Dinesh Ji's post).
