Bracts are pubescent/foliaceous and not subulate hence this is J.
multiflorum. Regards, Shrikant

Dear all,
For J.multiflorum the calyx-lobes are 5 only. 
For J.malabaricum the leaf apex should be acuminate; corolla lobes twisted towards left. The ratio of leaf and flower (across-width) seems to go with J. malabaricum

Could this be any other species of Jasminum? please validate.

I have collected J. malabaricum from Sanjay Gandhi National Park,
Mumbai. i never found the ovate-lanceolate leafy bracts of the
inflorecence. also check the pic at
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Malabar%20Jasmine.html

Does not looks like J. multiflorum either.

Dear all,

This is nothing but Jasminum rottlerianum (= J. pubescens). There were a lot of confusion regarding the identity of this plant earlier. 

Regards

this plant is common in Konkan

Dear All,

The plant in question is Jasminum rottlerianum Wall. ex A.DC. Not J. pubescens Willd.


 Jasminum pubescens  is currently known as J. multiflorum (Burm,.f.) Andrews, is  a cultivated species in home gardens. Whereas J. rottlerianum is a wild species with two varieties viz. Var. rottlerianum and var. glabrior C.B. Clarke. The latter variety is seen only in Kerala. 

Kindly see the following article for further reading:

Seema G Gopal & K N Nair 2002. Taxonomic notes on two species of Jasminum Linn (Oleaceae) from south India. J. Econ. Taxon. Bot. 26: 128-132.

Regards

Santhosh
