Dear Garg ji,
I request you to add this Aquatic macrophyte species found only in India.

Description:

Rotala serpiphylla in natural habitat of stream.  Home in Maharashtra India

Species identified by a German Botanists Heiko muth.
Please add this rare species it seems to be endangered as it is a ecotypic, adapted to a specific place, species growing by steadfast, special roots, only on rocks of clear, unpolluted streams.

 The main photo is emersed above water growth, this species
shows Heterophylly with thin, red pink leaves are produced when completely submerged under water (Photo attached). Submerged growth is rarer to find.

Thanks and regards
Dr Santhosh Kumar Rajamani

I think the correct spelling will be Rotala serpyllifolia (Roth) Bremek.
