Dear All,

This tall herb was photographed from Chakrata-Deoban Road in September 2011. I suppose this can be "Kasturi Bhindi" Abelmoschus moschatus Medik.
I request for validation/correction of the same.

Feedback from another thread from Surajit ji:
"This is also Abelmoschus manihot subsp. tetraphyllus var. pungens Roxb., I think."
"If I do not make mistake the set in this thread is same as in another earlier thread https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/x1gg-RzeT2Y/z7-on6nc2hkJ.
The thread above was identified and validated. But where are the "linear to narrowly oblong" epicalyx lobes (described and illustrated in FoC)?
Instead, this species bear some similarities with A. angulosus uploaded by Dinesh Ji and Anurag Ji. But the species perhaps not distributed in your region.
I still have confusion to the id I myself suggested for this species in the thread."

Also looks different from other images at Abelmoschus moschatus Medik.
