 Seen this Rotala sp. at CBD Hills.
Date/Time: 20-08-2011 / 10:00AM
Location: CBD Hills, Navi Mumbai
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Herb

May be R. rosea. I photographed it from Kashmir rice fields a few days back.

I always thought this one was R. densiflora. It should have 5 calyx lobes and I can't quite see in these pics. We should wait for ... to see these Rotala spp.
It is seemingly Rotala rosea. Please confirm if the flower is pentamerous, five sepal lobes, five small petals in between the sepal lobes and five stamens.
It is something related to R. rosea. Provide details for correct identification.
