Dear Sir,

Pl correct the generic name as 'Abroma'.

This plant is known as 'Ulat kamal' in hindi because of the shape of
the fruits. The roots are used as a medicine for gynaecological
ailments.

Regards,
Ritesh.

Thank you Ritesh ji,
 
I think its a spelling variation, means both the spellings are used. In fact the species originally described as "Ambroma augusta" and some databases including GBIF http://data.gbif.org/species/15867839 , Wikipedia http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambroma and IPNI follow this. However, some databases and floras follow the other spelling, "Abroma augusta" as mentioned by you. So, which one is correct?

With regards

R. Vijayasankar
