Good morning

The book, "Plant Groups" mentions two Leucas, 1) L. aspera Spreng = L. mollisima Wall. and 2) L. linifolia Spreng = L. lavendulaefolia Nees.

Well, i have taken care while typing the above names, but there is no L. aspera Spreng in the net, except some research papers on bio-chemical aspects of Leucas did mention it. Neither could i find L. lavendulaefolia Nees.


Species : Leucas lavandulifolia Smith ?
H & H : small herb of about 1 foot beside rail tracks
Date : 3/11/12, 10.00 a.m.
Place : Hooghly

But where are the L. aspera Spreng and L. lavendulaefolia Nees., mistakes in printing or enties?

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Many thanks Garg ji for resurfacing this post.

Surajit ji ... about L. lavendulaefolia Nees ... please refer to this post where Gurcharan ji has shed light.
(I had queried about L. lavendulaefolia Rees).

... to me your posted plant is indeed Leucas lavandulifolia Smith ... my learning from one of Vijayasankar ji's eye-opener ID - the link you already mentioned above https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/indiantreepix/xNP-ZsaSudw/discussion.

Basing my ID by noting the calyx mouth. No ambiguity about the obliqueness ... quite pronounced.

You may please yet wait for validating comments.

Regards.
Dinesh

Thanks for updating me on the species.   My observations are based on the photographs / references available from the web and  I do not have any books on  flora(s). In this connection I wish to add that  I am not a professional practicing taxonomist, though I studied  taxonomy during my post-graduation decades ago. My knowledge is limited to local  urban flora as I  look out for the plants in my neighborhood  as an hobby.  My approach is not deep and  can only suggest or point out to certain species, which need to be verified and  authenticated by the professional taxonomist(s) in the group.

Leucas lavandulifolia Sm(= Leucas linifolia (Roth) Spreng) - Leaves glabrous, calyx tube mouth oblique, no linear  bracts. This is used for pooja in the south, leaves used in medicine; In Karnataka the leaves are used in cooking.
