Sharing an image of Eriocaulon parvicephalum (Eriocaulaceae), a newly described species by our research team at Agharkar Research Institute, Pune. The new species is closely allied with E. palghatense but differs in having acuminate spathe lobes, eglandular petals in the male flower, and two rectangular seed coat appendages per cell. Phylogenetic analyses using the ITS region of nuclear ribosomal DNA, and psbA–trnH and trnL–F intergenic spacer regions of chloroplast DNA supported the status of E. parvicephalum as a new species.
Loc.: Sindhudurg District, Maharashtra, India.
Flowering: August

Congratulation ... and team!
And thank you for sharing the image and paper.
Nice work in classical and molecular taxonomy
I am delighted that many of the  members, experts, moderators and pillars of the group are publishing high standard papers in national and international journals. Of late, I have noticed a number of such publications.  Unfortunately our own people do not share their publications with the group whereby it becomes difficult to have a look at these papers as many of the journals do not provide free access to their readers. I can understand that there is the issue of Copyright.  Hence I would request all of you to be kind enough to share your publications to the ... whereby it will become easy for us to keep track of the publications as well as in keeping the  website of the group updated. This limited circulation will not violate the Copyright Act.
