Should not be confused with thespesia populnea. Although it has similar leaves, but the flowers are totally different, solitary axillary, with only 3 epicalyx , calyx cupular bell-like with almost truncate limb.
Here the flowers are borne on a peduncle, epicalyx segments are longer and 7-10 in number, and calyx not cupular. It is Hibiscus tiliaceus.
