This is second plant I am doubtful about. The leaves look heterophyllous but texture of leaves and shape looks different. May be P. aviculare subsp. aviculate (doubtfully) or some other species.

Dear Sir,

Most probably your are right in identifying this plant as P. aviculare. Though, a scrutiny of the nuts would help more. I suppose the number of stamens in your plant is 8. Fl. Pakistan describes this plant with 5 (-4) stamens whereas Fl. China with 8 stamens. Hooker has written nothing about the number of stamens. However, the illustrations available on net goes with P. aviculare. I think a close scrutiny of the complete plant specimen would only confirm the identity.

Best regards,
Ritesh.
