Hooghly-skMAY23/24 Spermacoce hispida L.??? : 8 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)
Yesterday I went to the place where I found what i thought to be Leucas aspera (Willd.) Link. But the population was invisible there. Instead i noticed a population of this herb, a bit stout, less than 1 ft height, possibly on the onset of flowering season. Leaves are around 1.5 to 2 cm.
Leaf thickness, fruit supports it to be Spermacoce hispida, colour variation is prevalent in this species.

Thank you Sir, but number of flowers seem to be too many. Attached here new photographs, recorded a couple of hours ago. The flowers seem to open during evening or very early morning.

For me the ID is correct.
Thank you very much Sir, this is the most likely id of this strange species. I face two problems though -
  • I couldn't find an open flower unlike other threads of this species
  • Number of flowers in a whorl doesn't tally with lit. I have with me or with info found in the net. There are as many as 6-8 flowers in each distal whorl and 18 flowers in each proximal whorl
It appears to me that this species is a combination of S. scabra and S. hispida of Flora Indica! TPL thinks S. scabra is synonymous with S. articularis L.f.; but this species neither tally with the description of FoC nor with Flora Indica.
Finally, even the paper, "Taxonomic and Nomenclatural Notes on the Spermacoce hispida-articularis Complex and S. stricta-pusilla Complex (Rubiaceae) / V. V. Sivarajan and R. Vasudevan Nair" doesn't help!
I appreciate the way of your approach.
