This was reported by me as new record to Maharashtra in 2004 from near railway tracks in the wood logs in a railway yard in Mumbai.
this plant was earlier reported at Truticorn harbouri believe this plant is spreading by the seeds which gets transported along with the wood logs used for railway tracks. now u have observed it near railway station. your observation of this plant near railway station puts more support to my belief.
member please comment regarding the spreading of this plant.

I first collected this interesting plant from SFRI campus, Jabalpur, MP.
