Koenigia nepalensis (Polygonum filicaule)_RKC_04102011: In response to the earlier post on Polygonum recumbens by ... and ..., I am uploading a few photographs of Koenigia nepalensis D. Don
(=Polygonum filicaule Wall ex Meisn.) for more clarification.
Family: Polygonaceae.
Loc.: On way to Churdhar (ca 1500m), Himachal Pradesh
Date: 10th August, 2010
.

Perhaps we have to find out whether Polygonum filicaule (with both Koeningia filicaule and K. nepalensis as its synonyms according to The Plant List). or Koeningia nepalensis.
I could not get you point! Would you please elaborate?

Flora of Pakistan was published in 2001. Both Flora of China (2003) and The Plant List (2010) recognize P. filicaule as correct name.
Considering Hedberg's work (1997) on Koenigia (cant attach the PDF here due to big file size), I think the genus deserves a separate status and I would be happy to follow K. nepalensis as an accepted name. Moreover, I am not comfortable with the mixing of Persicaria and Polygonum in Fl. China. Rather, Fl. Pakistan's treatment is justifiable and is in line with the molecular studies carried out by Kim & Donghue (2008) and others.
Hope to hear from you.

You managed to send the monograph in the previous mail. Yes the molecular data would help in deciding the ultimate status. Let us wait till we find some conclusions. Who knows you being an authority on the group could convince (through your publications) The Plant List and other recent databases to change their listing. After all most scientific community is bound to follow The Plant List.
Thanks for the good words and blessings sir! I am hopeful to convince the group in near future with my work.
Yes ... Now Polygonum filicaule.

Habitat: mountain slope
Habit: small decumbent herb growing from road wall, about 10 - 20 cm high; flower about 3 - 5 mm
Some Boraginaceae. Perhaps it would help more if you had cropped the photos and uploaded that plant only (lower right corner in both photographs).
Uploading cropped versions of above photos; hope they help.
Perhaps some Polygonum....
Me too have similar feeling, 
Yes surely Polygonum, what was appearing like a Boraginaceae member from a distance. Perhaps P. recumbens.
Could it be Polygonum filicaule? I don't know of many polygonums with bristly leaves.
... is right! This is definitely Polygonum filicaule (= Koenigia nepalensis) (Polygonaceae).

Yes, latest name is Polygonum filicaule.. 
Thanks ... for uploading a very clear image of Koenigia nepalensis D.Don.  
The detailed study of Hedberg (1997) has already proved Koenigia different from Persicaria. Molecular data also supported this result. The Plant List should be updated. 
Koenigia nepalensis D.Don (=Polygonum filicaule Wall. ex Meisn.) as per my opinion too.

This small herb was shot from Chakrata region..
I hope the pics belong to Koenigia nepalensis D. Don
Yes! It often grows in association with K. delicatula. Thanks for sharing.

I think appears close to images in threads under Koenigia nepalensis, of which it is a synonym.
