Breynia ¿ vitis-idaea (Burm.f.) C.E.C.Fisch. ? ... Phyllanthaceae, Euphorbiaceae s. l.
Dear friends, please validate this plant to be Breynia vitis-idaea; my earlier post remained inconclusive for want of view of fruit.
This plant best visualized as larger version of Breynia retusa; the male flowers seen in the pictures below are comparatively larger ... as much as 2 - 3 times larger than that of B. retusa.

Looks like Breynia vitis-idaea.
Thank you very much ... Will look forward for others' uploads of Breynia vitis-idaea.

DV :: 30MAR11 - 0611 :: Breynia / Phyllanthus species: Shrub about 5 - 7 ft, growing in vicinity of a stream.
This plant best visualized as larger version of Breynia retusa (cup-saucer plant).
Date/Time : March 30, 2011 at 6.11pm IST
Location Place : outskirts of Madikeri, Karnataka ... 12.451091, 75.711816 (on
Google maps <http://goo.gl/maps/CLqp> ... please be patient while downloading map)
Altitude : 3597 ft (above mean sea level)

Yes .., your visualization is quite close. It is B. vitis-idaea, but you need to see the fruits to be sure.

At Flowers of India http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Mountain%20Coffee%20Bush...,
we have .. plant identified by .... Calling ... to validate my plant as Breynia vitis-idaea

I tend to agree with .. id on account of leaf shape and the length of pedicel in male flowers. But a fruiting specimen would really help to confirm the id. As you know, fruiting calyx is enlarged in B. retusa whereas it is not enlarged in B. vitis-idaea.

... a counter-query: Is / Are there any other species close to B. vitis-idaea ?
If B. retusa is the only closest one, then this plant is not it as per my perception ... because the flowers that are seen in the posted plant are comparatively larger ... as much as 2 - 3 times larger than that of B. retusa.
Without female flowers and fruits it is not possible to comment on the correct identity of the images.
Thank you very very much ... for the clarity regarding limitation to resolve the ID of this query.
Someday when I visit Coorg again (hopefully during fruiting season of this plant), I will make it a point to go the site to get the photos.

Attaching photographs of the flowering of the Breynia species.
Requesting ID....

Breynia vitis-idaea as can be understood from the photos.


Breynia retusa, the cup and saucer plant.
