Plant for ID 10/09/2011SMP1: A small herb seen on a plateau of a dry scrub land near Bhigwan Pune in Nov 2005.
No leaves observed. Flower 2cm
Prostrate shrub.
Is it a Malvaceae member?
... could it be some Malvaceae member (Hibiscus) ? Shrunken in size because not well fed ?
The photos make me think it is something like Malva sylvestris which is a spreading perennial herb. but I am unsure of the color. 
Appears somewhat close to images at Malva sylvestris L.
But I am not sure.
Monsonia senegalensis of Geraniaceae.
