Dear Prasadji, Gibyji & Vijayasankarji
Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise please.
Some earlier relevant feedback:
“Doesn't look like A. indica. In A. indica the throat is white here the throat is Yellow. Further the A. indica is taller than this
Please refer A. indica @ http://www.flowersofindia.in/catalog/slides/Forest%20Ghost%20Flower.html
I think this could be Christisonia tubulosa - Magenta Ghost Flower of Orobanchaceae
Please refer @
“Please also check it for Aeginetia pedunculata (now A. acaulis). There seem to be few varieties in this.
“Thank you so much for the discussion. Gibyji, the stems in this sp was branched from near base, but it is not seen in Christisonia tubulosa. Can you please write some other characteristics that I can compare with.
Vijayasankarji, I have not found any scapes here like in A pedunculata. ” from Raju ji.
