Updated Cucurbitaceae in eFI site in line with The Cucurbitaceae of India : 1 post by 1 author.
I have updated Cucurbitaceae in eFI site in line with The Cucurbitaceae of India: Accepted names, synonyms, geographic distribution, and information on images and DNA sequences by Susanne S. Renner, Arun K. Pandey. (2013) by adding all the species found in India on genera pages.
No. of genera was reduced from 23 to 20 due to updated accepted names.
You can see them at Cucurbitaceae page & genera links at the bottom.
I think now all the posts of Solena amplexicaulis are to be sorted into three new accepted names as per details below:
Solena amplexicaulis- distributed in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala & Endemic as per The Cucurbitaceae of India. Other species are Solena heterophylla Lour. subsp. heterophylla (syn. Melothria heterophylla (Lour.) Cogn.) widely distributed all over India & Solena heterophylla Lour. subsp. napaulensis (Ser.) W.J.de Wilde & Duyfjes distributed in Western Himalaya (Garhwal, Kumaon hills, Uttarakhand) as per The Cucurbitaceae of India. For differences between two subspecies, pl. see Flora of China.
The following native genera have been listed in BSI Flora of Maharashtra.
The list of cultivated species included are:
Benincasa hispida (Kohala)
Citrullus lanatus (Kalingad)
Cucurbita maxima; C.pepo; C.moschata (Kala Bhopala)
Lagenaria siceraria (Dudhi Bhopala)
Luffa cyllindrica (Ghosale)
Momordica charantia (Karla)
