Impatiens khasiana for addition to eFI from Shillong-Meghalaya : 4 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (6)
While going through Impatiens page on eFI, I noticed that this species is not represented in the database..
This was recorded from Shillong and was identified by Dr. Rajib Gogoi as Impatiens khasiana, a rare and endemic taxon..
Interestingly, it was rediscovered after a long gap, just few months prior to my finding this..!!
