Wild perennial herb from coastal area near Chennai. Merging this with Oldenlandia stricta is not justified. Botanist for the sake of popularity just with few variations publishing new species. This is quite different from oldenlandia stricta. Botanists outside India just merged species without proper field observation, based on herbarium specimens. It cannot be justified.
Thanks & regards

I too agree with you Santhan JI, these days many taxonomists doing new species enthusiastically with very minute characters and without observing ecological variations, and even they don't know the exact genus or family also.
and some others doing needfully for their indeed,
My dear all taxonomists, please don't force for new species for our needs, there are many things to do that we didn't still,
We want to standardise the heritage literature from generation to generation, not pollute.

Understand, please.............................
With regards......Anjaneyulu.
