Persicaria sinuata

Persicaria sinuata (Royle ex Bab.) Rajbh. & R.Joshi, J. Jap. Bot. 70(6): 332 1995. (Syn: Polygonum sinuatum Royle ex Bab.);


Persicaria sinuata (Royle ex Bab.) Rajbh. & R. Joshi is an uncommon creeping herb in subalpine- alpine zones in Uttarakhand. It is found on moist slopes or along streams.
Image search in Google indicate that there are no (or very few) photographs of this species on web. It is also not represented in eFI and, therefore, an addition to our database.
The species can be distinguished from others by its peculiar lobe in leaves as visible in photograph.
Photograph shot in Sunderdhunga Valley, Bageshwar District of Uttarakhand.

A unique post ...
Thanks for this unique upload ...! I've seen this plant only on herbarium sheets. :-(

This species (Persicaria sinuata Polygonaceae) is represented by a lone image of vegetative state of plant posted by me. This time I was lucky to have flowers in this species.
Present image was photographed in Ralam valley Pithoragarh district at an elevation of about 2800m along a stream on 3rd September 2017.
Agreed with ... ID. This is Persicaria sinuata (Royle ex Bab.) Rajbh. & R.Joshi. Morphologically close to Persicaria runcinata (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) H. Gross
