Sir,

I am not sure if it is a herb or not. Please note that the last picture (5433.jpg) is of a 2nd plant, found some 200 meters away.

Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : roadside herb (?) or under shrub (?)
Date : 23/10/12, 11.35 a.m.
Place : Hooghly

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Sir,

A couple of days ago received an ID suggestion, Ficus heterophylla, that might fit to this species.

Thank you very much.

Sir,

Recorded more pictures of this plant today. This seems to be something like Ficus plant, and a prostrate under-shrub, sort of roadside weed, with few branches of about 3 to 4 feet long.

Thank you & Regards,

surajit
