The key to Paracaryopsis (Paracaryum in old literature including Cooke) species is :
1. Nutlets glochidiate
2. Stem red, flowers pale blue with a darker centre ---- P. coelestinum (Paracaryopsis coelestina (Lindl.) R.R.Mill is a
synonym of Adelocaryum coelestinum (Lindl.) Brand
)
2. Stem green, flowers dark blue uniform in colour without a dark centre ...... P. malabaricum (Paracaryopsis malabarica (C.B.Clarke) R.R.Mill is a
synonym of Adelocaryum malabaricum (C.B.Clarke) Brand)

1. Nutlets NOT glochidiate ---------- P. lambertianum (Paracaryopsis lambertiana (C.B.Clarke) R.R.Mill is a synonym of Adelocaryum lambertianum (C.B.Clarke) R.R.Mill)
  

A NEW SPECIES AND SYNOPSIS OF ADELOCARYUM (BORAGINACEAE – CYNOGLOSSEAE) WITH NOTES ON LINDELOFIA AND BRANDELLA by R. R. Milla- Edinburgh Journal of Botany / Volume 67 / Issue 01 /  March 2010, pp 141-154-
Abstract : Adelocaryum Brand (BoraginaceaeCynoglosseae) is shown to be the correct name for Paracaryopsis (H.Riedl) R.R.Mill, and the new combination Adelocaryum lambertianum (C.B.Clarke) R.R.Mill is made. The new species Adelocaryum nebulicola R.R.Mill is described from Oman and its affinities with the Indian species A. coelestinum (Lindl.) R.R.Mill are discussed. A synopsis of and revised key to the entire genus is provided as well as a revised description of Adelocaryum coelestinum. As circumscribed here Adelocaryum is restricted to tall mesophytic herbs lacking long glochidiate spinules on the wing-like margin of the nutlets. The desert annual or biennial Brandella erythraea is here excluded from Adelocaryum. The new combination Brandella erythraea forma subexalata (H.Riedl) R.R.Mill is made. Lindelofia spectabilis Lehm., for which the current correct name is L. longiflora (Benth.) Baill., is designated lectotype of the genus Lindelofia Lehm.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Adelocaryum (Pl. click on this link in blue colour to see the details).  

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.
 

Pl. go through Adelocaryum (‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Boraginaceae‎) page with images of species (done by me) in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, it will be really nice.

Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
