This set is from my earlier thread of C. diffusa Burm.f. - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/6Xf1XiDWPRE/GHSUyRUuI2IJ

FoC specifies 2 longer petals blue, 4.2-6 mm. Here they seem to be larger than that.
FoNA specifies proximal petal smaller. Here all petals equal, at least not smaller.

A similar looking one was identified as C. longifolia in a flickr acc - https://www.flickr.com/photos/haile/2384267981/in/photostream/

On Roxburgh's C. salicifolia (C. longifolia Lam. of BSI) Haines wrote "petals equal except that the lower has a shorter claw." Haines also wrote flowers are smaller than in "nudiflora" (C. diffusa Burm. f.).

On C. hasskarlii C.B. Cl., Haines recorded, "close to C. salicifolia, differing by the broader leaves, inflated sheaths, less acuminate spathes rarely over .8 inch.... ."

KEW has a herbarium of C. hasskarlii from UP - http://apps.kew.org/herbcat/getImage.do?imageBarcode=K000794517

Can it be C. hasskarlii C.B.Cl. of my table?


Thank you
Regards
