31.08.11.JP.01 - Eriocaulon spp. identification: The photograph is of an Eriocaulon seen at Matheran.
Any help with the species identification is greatly appreciated.
While I know Eriocaulaceae is a vast family and identifications based on flower photos are rather difficult,
this species had a peculiar character: the inflorescence stalk was cover to an extent by a leaf sheath-like covering.
As you have opinion-ed, it is very difficult to identify a species of Eriocaulon from a photograph.
I guess this could be Erioculaon euripeplon Koernicke.
I could collect this extremely variable species from Maharashtra and attaching an image of this species collected from Lonaavala, Pune. The colour of the head is different in my picture. So please confirm the identity with relevant literature.
