As we are trying to find an expert for Campanulaceae, it has been decided to postpone Campanulaceae to a later month. Our April episode as such would include Ericaceae (inc. Vacciniaceae) only. Members are requested to have uniform subject line for their uploads so that we are able to keep a tag on uploads.
For already identified uploads
Ericaceae (inc. Vacciniaceae) Fortnight: ..............(name of plant) from ...............(Place)-..........(Serial No. say GSAPR-1)
For uploads meant for identification:
Ericaceae (inc. Vacciniaceae) Fortnight: ..............(unique ID) from ...............(Place)-..........(Serial No. say GSAPR-1)
Genera expected to be covered under Ericaceae .........................

Thanks a lot, ...  A reply from ... from another thread:
"Yes, the family Vacciniaceae was included under Ericaceae as the subfamily Vaccinioideae long ago. Besides, Monotropaceae, Pyrolaceae, Epacridaceae, Empetraceae, Stypheliaceae are also included under Ericaceae based on molecular data (Kron et al. 2002b in Botanical Review).
Therefore, now Ericaceae s.l. (sensu lato)
Ericaceae s.l.
Genera:
Agapetes
Arbutus (not recorded from India)
Azalea (included under Rhododendron)
Craibiodendron
Cassiope
Diplarche (now included under Rhododendron by Argent)
Empetra (not recorded from India yet)
Enkianthus
Epacris (not recorded from India yet)
Gaultheria
Leucothoe
Lyonia
Monotropa
Pyrola
Pieris
Rhododendron
Styphelia (not recorded from India)
Vaccinium
I will do most of the genera, except Rhododendron (as I did not revise it during "Flora of India" project as well as in my Thesis work. Therefore, I need Dr. D. Bhattacharyya (Assam University, Silchar) who revised Indian Rhododendron, Dr. A. A. Mao (Jt. Director, BSI, Shillong) who has excellent contribution in North-eastern Rhododendron and Dr. M. Sanjappa (former Director, BSI, presently in Botanic

Species, genera & family pages of‎‎‎ ‎‎Ericaceae are now with images. I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
