Friends,
Pachmari area of Satpura Tiger Reserve is a store house of many highly rare and endangered spices. More than hundred species of Pteridophyts are reported from the area. This area is known for the Satpura Hypothesis. Many Himalayan and Western Ghat's species are found in the area. I have observed many plant & animal species, which are not found in Central India. I will post them in a series.
Recently Govt of India has decided to enclude Alosphila balkrishnani in the list of endengred species under Biodiversity Act.
I searched my old photographs and found a species looking like Alosphila balkrishnani. This is encluded in the Management Plan of Satpura tiger reserve as Cythia alosphila. I am enclosing the photogeraph, which i have taken from the Pachmari range of Satpura Tiger Reserve on 6.6.09
I think this is Alosphila balkrishnani, hope ID is correct. Experts please confirm.
 Thanks in advance

Dear Nayan ji,

The Traditional Healers of Chhattisgarh have rich Traditional
Agricultural Knowledge about Alsophila sp.. In early days when
medicinal rice was under cultivation in large areas they were using
Alsophila based formulations to manage pest. They claim that it
manages pest without affecting medicinal properties of rice. I am
trying to document this traditional knowledge. Some related
publications:
