In Flora of India Vol-2 by BSI the account of Violaceae is written by S.P.Banerjee and B.B.Pramanik. In this account authors have given generic description, key to species, keys to sub species/ varieties/ forma (as the case may be), description of species, flowering and fruiting time, and distribution in India. This document (Banerjee and Pramanik, 1993) have mentioned presence of following 34 wild species in India-
1- Viola betonicifolia (subsp. betonicifolia; subsp. jaunsarensis, line diagram given),
2- V.biflora,
3- V.bulbosa subsp. tuberifera,
4- V.cameleo,
5- V.canescens,
6- V.cinerea var. stocksii,
7- V.diffusa,
8- V.fedtschenkoana (var. fedtschenkoana, var. muzaffarabadensis),
9- V.glaucescens,
10- V.hamiltoniana,
11- V.hediniana,
12- V.hookeri,
13- V.hossei,
14- V.inconspicua,
15- V.indica (forma barbata, forma indica),
16- V.jangiensis,
17- V.jordanii var. falconeri,
18- V.kunawarensis,
19- V.macroceros,
20- V.moupinensis,
21- V.odorata,
22- V.paravaginata,
23- V.philippica,
24- V.pilosa,
25- V.placida,
26- V.pogonantha,
27- V.reichenbachiana,
28- V.rupestris (var. himalayensis, var. rupestris),
29- V.sikkimensis (line diagram given),
30- V.suavis,
31- V.sylvatica,
32- V.thomsonii,
33- V.wallichiana,
34- V.yunnanensis 
 
Viola tricolor is also added in this list by the authors (Banerjee and Pramanik,1993) with the remark that it is cultivated and rarely occur as escape from cultivation. Almost similar information is also available in the FASCICLE OF FLORA OF INDIA, FASCICLE-12 VIOLACEAE written by S.P.Banerjee and B.B.Pramanik and published by Botanical Survey of India, Howrah in 1983.
 
No Viola seems threatened in India as no species is mentioned in Red Data Book of Indian Plants by Nayar and Sastry (1987-90).

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Viola

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpagses. On clicking them one can see all the details.

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome


I have added the complete list of Viola species occurring in India, with reference.

 
Plate for Viola species of Himachal (?) : Attachments (1). 1 MB.

Pl. go throughViola ‎‎(Violaceae) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.


Some photos under Viola canescens do not show up. The links are broken perhaps. 
I was hoping for a discussion on this species too as there is some possibility that this might be V. pilosa (at least if we follow the Flora of China). If we rely entirely on Flora of Pakistan, then our id seems to be correct.
I have additional images which I can send for more scrutiny.
Thanks, ..., Some photos may not be able to load up sometimes.
You are most welcome to pl. post further photos for further scrutiny.
