Dear all,

 

Pl find the photograph of two beautiful wild ornamental plants from Arunachal Pradesh. Clerodendrum lasiocephalum is rare and probably restricted to North East India and Myanmar only. Oxyspora paniculata (Melastomataceae) is almost common throughout Arunachal Pradesh.

 

Locality: Upper Siang district, Arunachal Pradesh.

 

Regards,

Ritesh.

Ritesh ji
In future kindly take care to send one species per mail, otherwise it would be difficult to handle these in the database.

Dear Riteshji,

Beautiful photos.  I have seen Clerodendrum lasiocephalum   in my native place in Kerala.
It is the favorite of butterflies.

Regards.,

Mani.

Hi, Ritesh ji,
Clerodendrum lasiocephalum is a syn. of Clerodendrum chinense (Osbeck) Mabb., both as per Catalogue of life and WCSP.
Your posted 1st image looks different from those at Clerodendrum chinense in efi site.

Dear Garg Sir,
Thanks a lot for pointing this out. My plant definitely looks different from C. chinense (Osbeck) Mabb. 
IPNI has two citations for C. lasiocephalum:
Clerodendrum lasiocephalum C.B.Clarke, Fl. Brit. India [J. D. Hooker] 4(12): 594 (1885).  
Clerodendrum lasiocephalum C.B.Clarke & C.E.C.Fisch., Bull. Misc. Inform. Kew 1940(7): 299, descr. ampl. (1941).  
I shall try to go through the second reference and get back to you.
Regards,
Ritesh

Thanks, Ritesh ji.
I could only get one reference of Clerodendrum lasiocephalum in WCSP, Catalogue of Life as well as in The Plant list.
