This is Arisaema murrayi.
identification no170811sn2: Kindly identify this flora. Is it Arisaema murrayi? (Murrayi’s Cobra Lily)
location: mulshi, pune. 3500ft above msl.
Commonly it should actually be called Murray’s Cobra lily and not Murrayi’s !!
Arisaema murrayi flowering: Photographed at Khandala over the weekend.
Thanks for sharing.. This is the type variety of Arisaema murrayi (J. Graham) Hook.
This is one of the most beautiful species of Arisaema I have encountered in Western Ghats.
In fact, for me, all the species looks very pretty :-). I myself have collected this species from Lonavala, Sinhagad, Panchgani as well as Mahabaleshwar regions of Maharashtra. This species is in flowering in my garden right now. It is coming well in lower altitudes too..
I am planning a trip to Maharashtra soon this month to collect the var. sonubineae, described by Lakshminarasimhan & Punekar
you may be the right man to answer my questions. I live in Central Scotland. I have been trying to grow this from very rare and expensive bulbils for 2 or 3 years now.
The bulbils seem to grow, they get leaves and roots I overwintered them with others, utile, ciliatum, Flavum in my garage frost free. In spring however when the others grow, nothing. When I check the pots there’s nothing either, maybe a bit “skin“ is all that’s left of the bulb. This year I put the bulbils in my greenhouse and just recently one has formed a leaf, however there’s not much good weather left.
What temperature range do they like and do you think I should remove them from the soil to overwinter them ?

Requesting to please validate ID of this Araceae member captured near Satara, Maharashtra in October 2014.
I think, it is Arisaema dracontium
Given the length of the peduncle and the presumed size of the plant I would say it is most likely the infrutescence of murrayi. Arisaema ghaticum occurs in the same area and has a similar shaped infrutescence but is generally smaller in size with a shorter peduncle

… two instances of Arisaema murrayi:
While wanting to compile common names for Arisaema murrayi … the basic exercise of settling on the botanical name came to these two instances: 1) … Arisaema murrayi Hooker Hook. ex Blatter …
http://www.aroid.org/genera/arisaema/herold/Pages/arlist.php … International Aroid Society
2) … Arisaema murrayi (J.Graham) Hook. … syn.: Arum murrayi J.Graham
… http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-15524 …The Plants List
Naive query: are these both one and the same ?
Yes sir, actually both names are pointing towards the same plant but I believe there is some mistake on both links.

commonly known as: Murray’s cobra lily • Marathi: पांढरा सापकांदा pandhra sap-kanda
botanical names: Arisaema murrayi (J.Graham) Hook. … synonym: Arum murrayi J.Graham
murrayi in context of Arisaema murrayi is named for J A Murray, 18th century Swedish student of Linnaeus … that was my belief, until one of my friends, .. corrected me that it would be Dr Murray, much associated with flora of Mahabaleshwar, a contemporary of Graham.
Searching internet for Dr Murray leads to Dr. John Murray (1809-1898), a surgeon with the Bengal Medical Service of East India Company … also was into photography of Mughal architecture in India.
Cannot find any mention that he was present in Western Ghats.
Please give some idea about the Dr Murray in whose honour Arisaema murrayi was named.
Genus Murraya was honoured to J A Murray, 18th century Swedish student of Linnaeus
