Hooghly Today : Hygrophila ???:
Found this erect herb beside a rural drainage.
Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : erect, about 1 ft. high and smaller, stem hard (woody); not aromatic
Date : 08/02/2013
Place : Hooghly
This species seems to be Hygrophila ringens of FoI, the description of which can be found in FoC.
This is very interesting -
According to the Flora of British India Hygrophila obovata Nees = H. dimidiata Nees = H. salicifolia var. dimidiata. -----> The problem with this id is that F. B. I. mentions its distribution in Java and Borneo!


you do have an eye that catches the unusal ....
good we get to see them thru your efforts

Nice picture ... Not seen, probably distributed in your area and further south. Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks ... for the appreciation.
I think these are found along the west coast, typically in marsh / swamps near mangroves. I checked now - it is also recorded from Rajasthan - thus may have affinity to swamps with salt content.
