AbstractAcrotrema uniflorum Hook. var. uniflorum, a Sri Lankan endemic is reported for the first time for India from Pathanamthitta district of Kerala, southern Western Ghats. It is apparently similar to A. arnottianum Wight, an endemic species of the southern Western Ghats, but can easily be distinguished from the latter by its short peduncled inflorescence, less number of stamens and green juvenile leaves. It is described here with photographs to facilitate easy identification

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Acrotrema
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.

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

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.
