Commelinales & Zingiberales Week: Commelinaceae, Commelina forsskalii Vahl. from Delhi (needs confirmation): Commelinales & Zingiberales Week: Commelinaceae, Commelina forsskalii Vahl.  Enum. Pl. 2: 172 1805.
Syn: C. falcata Hassk.
    The plant is common in the Old Delhi Ridge forest in rainy season. The plant is reported and looks like C. forsskalii Vahl but I am not able to ignore the distinct auricles at the base of leaf sheath, a character distinctive of C. erecta (according to Flora of North America) and absent in C. forsskalii. The experts are requested to examine this aspect critically.
    The spellings of this binomial is also worth consideration. The species is often reported in Indian publications as C. forskalaei, whereas GRIN, Flora North America take up C. forskaolii Vahl.
- I think this is the only member (with cleistogamous flowers) apart from C. benghalensis i. e Commelina forskalaei Vahl Enum. Pl. [Vahl] ii. 172. 1805; Clarke In DC. Mon. Phan. 3;168.1881. Type: Arabia forsskal (C, Holotype)
    Procumbent, sparsely branched annual herb. Root fibrous. Basal nodes with sub-terranian cleistogamous flowers.
    C. forskalaei resembles C. benghalensis in having sub-terranian cleistogamous flowers, undulate leaf margin and cucullate spatathe. But differs from C. benghalensis in its elliptic leaves absence of red rufus hairs on the sheath and smooth seeds with ridges and depressions in the testa as against ovate undulate leaves, red rufus hairs in the sheath and reticulate seeds in C. benghalensis

Dayflower For ID 201011 NS1: This dayflower I clicked today ( 20 th Oct 11) in Pune.
This should be Commelina forslalii Hochst. ex C. B. Clarke.
And one thing I have forgot to mention apart from Commelina benghalensis only this species having Cleistogamous flowers :)
Nice caption ... and thnx for sharing such a beautiful Spiderwort.
It is Commelina forskalii, perhaps a typo error by ...
...Previously we had a lot of discussions on Commelina species.
The key of differentiation is based on the cells of ovary which is difficult in the field.
Many taxonomists objected about the guesses made from morphological characters.
I do not know about any key based on morphological characters.
According to my knowledge and belief two species are common at least in Maharashtra (Common areas around cities Not high elevations and biodiversity rich areas)
Commelina benghalensis : Leaves more ovate, elliptic than long
Commelina forsskalii : Prostrate herb. Leaves more linear oblong than elliptic. Margins wavy.
Please share your observations or otherwise.
Confusion about the spelling is also there
According to The plant List
Commelina forsskalaei Vahl : Unresolved
Commelina forsskalii Vahl : Accepted
I am a little confused after reading the key provided by
... Attaching 2 pictures from my 2 earlier posts both of which were identified as Commelina benghalensis
1)Post1 of 26th sep
efloraofindia:''For Id 26092011MR3’’ Wandering Jew Pune
The said plant was >7 cms in length with small(as compared to my next post) lilac flowers leaves more elliptic than long and wavy
picture labeled Commelina bengalensis1  

2)Post 2
efloraofindia:''For Id 06102011MR2’’ ?Commelina bengalensis Pune
This plant was 2-3 cms , leaves more long than broad,not wavy bigger flowers, blue in color
picture labelled Commelina bengalensis2

Can this plant show these variations?
or are they different
To me, the first pic looks more like - Commelina benghalensis ( Ovate leaves )
and the second seems more near to- Commelina forsskalii ( lanceolate leaves).
But as ... said - " The key of differentiation is based on the cells of ovary which is difficult in the field.
Many taxonomists objected about the guesses made from morphological characters "", May b I m completely wrong here.
I am very happy to read all the discussion and finally I would like to conclude something
... your posted pictures First Commelina bengalensis 1.jpg is absolutely no doubt Commelina benghalensis
But Commelina bengalensis 2.jpg may be Commelina diffusa (most probably)

May be this key will be helpful to identify few common Commelina's in field .................

1. Spathes with margins fused at least basally .......................................................2

20102011GS1 Comelina from Delhi for ID: This plant has been lying in my folders for now more than two years. Under normal circumstances I would have identified it as C. forskaolii Vahl, a species which has been commonly reported from the area (Old Delhi Ridge) and lot of cytotaxonomic work done by workers as Delhi University. However, I could not ignore three clear differences that I noted in this plant: plants are erect; there seem to be auricles at the base of the leaf blade and the leaves are almost linear-lanceolate. These features take me to C. erecta L., although not reported from the area. The only feature that is preventing me to call it C. erecta is proximal petal which appears bluish. Incidentally both the species are described and keyed in Flora of North America with the differences: 
Leaf-sheath with auricles at summit; Proximal petal minute, white; locules all one seeded; plants erect; leaves linear to lanceolate.........C. erecta
Leaf-sheath not auricled; proximal petal blue, lilac or lavender; some locules 2-seeded; plants decumbent to ascending;
leaves oblong to lanceolate-oblong to elliptic- oblong.......................................................................................C. forskaolii
I am uploading different parts of plant including fruits. Kindly give your opinion.
For me it looks like Commelina forskaolii though keeping in mind the difference .... I am really confused
Is it a hybrid (natural hybrid)?
Sir this is very confusing Genus. you seems to be right in C forskaolii
This is Commelina forskailii Hochst. ex C. B. Clarke.. for sure

Could this be Commelina clavata C.B.Clarke of Commelinaceae family? 
This is Commelina forsskalii Vahl.
Do you have any images showing the details of spathe?
Seems to be Commelina kurzii, but not sure..!

Is this Commelina diffusa/ Commelina maculata
This is Commelina forskalaei Vahl for sure, u may observe the underground flowers in it like C. benghalensis
Is there any time relationship between aerial flowering and underground flowering? Or any other relation?

Commelina forsskalaei underground flowers: I wanted to see the underground flowers of Commelina. On Sunday I could uproot one of the very widely growing weed to locate these. I think the species is
Commelina forsskalaei

With underground flowers.
Please validate.
what use is an underground flower in the scheme of things
what fertilizes it? etc
Perhaps the second paragraph of column 2, page 1 of this article on another species throws light on your question.
http://naldc.nal.usda.gov/download/17440/PDF
I learned that at least Commelina benghalensis makes seeds underground in closed sefl contained system... self pollinated flowering... may be same system operates in the specimen above.. thank you
I knew I would learn something new here thanks to ... for showing the ? flower underground... the process/flowers is/are called cleistogamous (closed, self pollinated) flowers... in that same paragraph... 
I think perhaps its not just the drought in case of that paper, they spray mercilessly roundup type of insecticide ... may that has something to with it... and or some natural selection/ mutation .... they have not been able to kill the weed in cotton fields.. contrary to the belief that the weedkiller would do the job!!!! which it did not , apparently....

[efloraofindia:07012013] Flora picture of the Year- 2012- Bhagyashri Ranade: My Flora picture of the year 2012 are these flowers of Commelina forskalei Vahl. It was fascinating for me to see and learn that the same plant has flowers above the ground as well as underground and that the underground flowers apparently form a drought-survival development.
Thank you ... for the beautiful picture. Its way of surviving drought is indeed amazing. 
Nice story associated with a tiny plant with beautiful flowers. I have added this to Flora Picture 2012
Fine close-up shots! I know Commelina spp. produce small flowers. This phenomenon of production of underground or un-opening flowers (which still produce seeds) is known as "cleistogamy". The disadvantage of cleistogamy is that the plants produced by such seeds are genetically same to parents. But the survival of a species in long run requires variations which can be brought by normal flowers; that is why this species produced normal flowers. Plants are probably wiser than we usually assume!
