These lovely tiny ground flowers of Neanotis montholoni can be seen in the open area at the base of Kanheri Caves in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai.

 

We did not see these gregarious herbs last year so their seeds must have been dormant until now! Just one of the smaller enigmas of our forests, I suppose!

Appears more closer to images at Neanotis lancifolia (Hook.f.) W.H.Lewis rather than those at Neanotis montholonii (Hook.f.) W.H.Lewis
