Sir,

Bengal Plants describes only one species, so this seems to be Ranunculus sceleratus L., a wild herb found on the banks of the Hooghly river, at Chandannagar.

Regards,

Dear Surajit Ji,

Thanks for sharing the detailed images. Not doubting your ID.....just informing that some other Ranunculus have also been reported from W. Bengal. You may find this Taiwania paper useful.

Best regards,
Ritesh.

Good morning RItesh Ji

The Ranunculus document is excellent, it informs i can expect R. diffusus DC. var. diffusus, R. sardosus, R. muricatus in South Bengal. Besides, there are some more in North Bengal. The distribution maps are fantastic, and those illustrations.

Thank you very  v  e  r  y  much.

Regards,

surajit
