Hello Dinesh ji
 
This is a real fantastic capture!
This white variety was first described by Fr.Santapau as Aeginetia indica alba in the Flora of Khandala (Refer Flora of Khandala). He propably avoided mentioning the exact location in Khandala probably to avoid any undue disturbance!!
 
 
best regards

Tungareshwar is home to such miracles including the rusty spotted cat and what not. A systematic documentation of flora and fauna would disclose many such miracles, if work is done properly.

... that is some news Aditya ji, thank you very much !!
Was already happy that I cam across some rare variety; now, would be doubly happy to know if Aeginetia indica alba is an accepted name ... any further validations in this context?
Regards.
