ANMAR34/54 Please identify this herb : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (6) 
Family: Rubiaceae
Date: November 2014
Place: Nelliyampathy, Palakkad, Kerala

Habit: Herb
Habitat: Grasslands

The stipules are pectinate. They are cut up/divided. Please see the attached photo.
Using this feature and referring the Hassan flora, I can narrow down to the genera Neanotis, Oldenlandia, Knoxia, Borreria and Mitracarpus (please see attached photo again).
I cannot go further as I do not know the nature and number of ovules and locules of the ovary in the plant I have photographed.
Neanotis sp? 
Neanotis species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 
I guess it is Knoxia mollis (synonym of K. sumatrensis).
Thanks sir. Knoxia sumatrensis.
