Rajgad, Dec 2014 :: Requesting ID - Senecio (?) :: ARKFEB-03/03 : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (7)
Please ID these yellow flowers captured at Rajgad near Pune in Dec 2014.
Are they Senecio edgworthii?

efi page on Senecio edgeworthii


Pentanema cernuum (Dalzell) Ling 
Interesting observations ...
Often these plants are neglected assuming to be Senecio.
Thanks ... for the ID
The leaves here definitely look different which must be the differentiating character from the common Pentanema indicum
True, I observed these flowers as different only because at a particular place, they stood beside S. bombayensis and looked completely different.
Else I would have assumed them to be some Senecio...
For a layperson, the Senecios and the like are very difficult to identify/differentiate.

The flower images posted as Pentanema cernuum (which is now Vicoa cernua) by Dinesh Valke, Neha Singh and Alka Khare should actually be of a newly described species Vicoa gokhalei Gosavi, Madhav, Chandore & S.R.Yadav
I am attaching a page from the 2020 paper describing the species. Vicoa cernua has very small ray-florets. The flowers with long ray-florets should be of Vicoa gokhalei

Thank you very much ... for leading to this ID, and for the literature.

Posted by Dinesh Valke in 2013, Neha Singh in 2011 and Alka Khare in 2015 and identified as Pentanema cernuum have been published now as
Vicoa gokhalei in 2020, as per details herein.
This again highlights the treasure trove present in efloraofindia, yet to be discovered.
Yes ..., very true
Yes ... In fact I had seen this plant in the year 2007 at Vasota fort in Maharashtra.
Very nice dear ... !! Matter of pride !!
If possible, you may add your picture(s) of the plant to eFI for sake of records.
