Sir,

Don't know how Amarantus in "Bengal Plants" became Amaranthus these days but this is surely Amaranthus spinosus Linnaeus, or KANTA-NOTEY (কাঁটা নোটে) (KANTA NUTIA in Bengal Plants), a very common herb on roadside and wasteplace.

ID Help :

Thank you & Regards,

This thorny Amaranthus is not very common near our area in Pune as against the more common weed Amaranthus viridis.

It is very very common here, Satish Sir, found in everywhere, yet to see Amaranthus viridis, ....maybe there are many, didn't notice carefully.
