just returned from a lovely trip to the north Bengal hills and forests. Five of us (...) visited Buxa Tiger Reserve-Chilapata Forests and Jaldapara WLS, and seen lots of wildlife, wild plants and birds.

Enjoyed bathing in Jainty river and hill streams at Buxa, the elephant ride thru dense forest at Jaldapara was exciting, the butterflies of the hills were awesome.... and the rhinos of forests simply amazing... the hills were clothed with wild flora.... got spectacular views of the buxa hills on moonlit Purnima nights....
sharing images of wild flowers taken in the Buxa hills near Tashigaon (2000 feet).

plz help with the IDs.


This looks like some species of Dicliptera.


Thanks for identifying the genus of this flower....
can u tell me whats the species?
Have been to Buxa Tiger Reserve & Jaldapara WLS but am not familiar with the local flora there. To get to the species level you will have to consult the local field guides.
Yes, this is Dicliptera, most probably D. cuneata.
Dicliptera for sure 
However, India Biodiversity Portal  gives its range as Peninsular India only
