Canscora sp??260111-PKA2: I had seen this small herb with white flowers. Leaves small (approx 10- 12mm), opposite, sessile.
This looks like some Canscora sp. (Gentianaceae Family). This is for the first time i had seen Canscora sp. with white flowers.
Date/ Time: 17-01-2011 / 02:45PM
Location: In the forest cover near Kalikale village Off  "Ankola-Yalapur Rd head, Karnataka.
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habt: Herb.

I can see calyx not winged, flowers pedicellate and pedicels not winged (to rule out C. decussata). Can't go with the colour either. Can you indicate the size of the corolla? If the calyx is keeled it could be C. khandalensis. If the pedicels are winged, it could be C. pauciflora. Need more info to be sure.

I think its the same Canscora diffusa. C. Khandalensis and C. pauciflora are treated as the synonyms of C. difusa.

May 18, "Fascination of Plants Day" - Canscora diffusa from Karnala Bird Sanctuary, Maharashtra: Though, it is almost 4 years for me that I am watching (and still trying to learn the ABC of Flora observation) wild flowers in and around Mumbai. But my love for this common herb of our region still reminds me on how it attracted me from looking up (for birds) to looking down (for such small herbs) and completely diverted me and my interest from BIRD WATCHING to FLORA. 
Canscora diffusa played the role of such change that I stand here for today on efI. I dedicate this pic and myself for the cause, as captioned, for the WILD FLOWERS OF WESTERN GHATS.

Canscora ? Hooghly 10/12/12 sk1:
"Bengal Plants" describes two Canscora species :-
1) C. diffusa R. Br.; F. B. I. iv. 103; E. D. C. 384. Pladera virgata F. I. i. 401.
2) C. decussata Roem. & Schultz., F. B. I. iv. 104; E. D. C. 382. Pladera decussata F. I. i. 402.
Calyx striate or keeled ....... flowers rose-coloured ........................ diffusa
Calyx winged .................... flowers white .................................... decussata
While both the plants are erect branching annual, in all provinces, the first one has no Bengali name and the second one decussata is DANKUNI in Bengali (Bengal Plants)
I found this species growing on old wall, about 15 cm high. Darker background prevented the camera to focus lighter coloured object desired.
Species : Canscora diffusa (Vahl) R. Brown ex Roemer & Schultes ?
H & H : wild small herb on old wall
Date : 6/12/12, 10.10 a.m.
Place : Hooghly
all are Canscora diffusa 
 
Please identify this flower:  This flowers are found in western Satpuda range (Called Rajpipla Hills of Gujarat)
They are :
- Canscora diffusa.
- a species of Pimpinella.
- Hibiscus hirtus [Lesser White Mallow].

Dehradun-Mussoorie Tour 2013:: Canscora diffusa for validation.. : Attachments (5). 4 posts by 2 authors.
This delicate herb was shot from Dehradun-Mussoorie road recently...
I could identify this as Canscora diffusa, my first sighting...
Please validate/correct the id..
Yes it is Canscora diffusa
Thanks... can this also be Canscora roxburghii ?
As per TPL and a book Canscora roxburghii Arn, ex Miq. is accepted name of C. wallichii C. B. Clarke (middle pic in the linked plate), which is similar to Canscora perfoliata Lam. and distributed in South India (FBI. iv. 105). A herbarium can be found at http://www.br.fgov.be/RESEARCH/COLLECTIONS/HERBARIUM/detail.php?ID=554412.
This doesn't look like C. roxburghii Arn, ex Miq. It looks like C. diffusa R. Br.
I am sorry for creating confusion in the thread...
I think no one referred this plant to be anything else than C. diffusa..

This small herb was shot from near Mussoorie..
Canscora alata.... please validate..
Flowers look trimerous! In Canscora flowers are tetramerous.
Thanks Rawat Ji..the specimens actually appear trimerous as you have said.. this should not be unusual for Canscora
I now feel that this should rather be Canscora diffusa..
As per other thread, the id is resolved as C. diffusa..

Picture taken at Goa 
Feb. 2013 
Nice photographs ... Do U have the photographs of leaves and also the side view of the flower. This will help in further confirmation of ID..
Yes very nice photo.
But I am very doubtful on its identity. It is C. perfoliata ?
I think ... can confirm the identity. We will wait for their reply
Thanks all for appreciating .. No ... do not have leaf picture 
Beautiful picture!
But, it doesn't look like Canscora perfoliata to me too, mainly due to the sepals which are not (Is that right?) broadly winged in the posted picture.
Please check these links for typical C. perfoliata:
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Pierced%20Leaf%20Canscora.html
http://plantillustrations.org/illustration.php?id_illustration=130417
If the stems are not prominently winged, then this could probably be C. diffusa.
http://www.tropicos.org/Image/21427?projectid=32
It appears close to images at Canscora diffusa (Vahl) R.Br. ex Roem. & Schult.

Canscora diffuse or Canscora decurrens? 09FEB2018SMP1 : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5)
A 1 foot tall herb. Almost leafless presently. A small pair of sessile ovate leaves observed near base though. 
Stem is quadrangular in some parts bot not like winged to me.
Flowers smaller than observed on plants on hills like Purandar
The plant is observed in the quarry near water body in this week (Feb 2018)
Is it Canscora diffusa or Canscora decurrens

Thanks, ... Pl. check at 

It is Canscora diffusa (Vahl) R.Br. ex Roem. & Schult. C. decurrens Dalz. is its synonym as per details at Canscora

Yes thought so but FOS and BSI Maharashtra flora consider them as separate 

Pl. check latest revision details as per latest publication at

Family: Gentianaceae
Date: 28th December 2014
Place: Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary
Habit: Herb
Habitat: Wet walls

Canscora - species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


I find it close to images at Canscorinella stricta (Sedgwick) Nampy & Shahina & as per Shahina PM, Santhosh Nampy. 2014. A taxonomic revision of the genus Canscora in South India, and the erection of the new genus Canscorinella (Canscorinae, Gentianaceae) with two new combinations." Phytotaxa 164(4): 201–225. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.11646/phytotaxa.164.4.1.
Can it be a young plant ?
Pl. give your views.
May be close to Canscora diffusa only.
Canscora sanjappae Diwakar & R.Kr. Singh

Seems to be Canscora diffusa to me.
Experts kindly validate.

what kind of ground is it growing in? i.e. habit photo?
It was growing on a mountain slope.
