Dear members,         

Pl. go through Rumex (Polygonaceaepage with comparative images of species in efloraofindia. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details. Genus pages generally give details of most of the species found in India.

I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identification in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genus (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
Credit goes to Ritesh ji, for identifying most of the Rumex and Polygonaceae posts.

With regards,

David Merrick

For R. dentatus I've attached the description I have (and the related R. pulcher) which is that it is an annual with 0 or few twiggy branches, the species having a "stiff" look. The last five R. dentatus photos on the page seem to depart from that description. The 1st pic of all those presented for R. dentatus does give a much more fitting presentation of those qualities to my mind. Beyond my reading I've no special experience of the species so others may know better. d
