Please confirm the id.

Collected from: Tirunelveli dt., TN.


Excellent attempt of presenting posts, … They look good.

About the ID, the calyx does not look the typical “enlarged”. Surely it must be some other species of Breynia. Will wait for comments.


Thank you so much … The entire credit goes to you, my Guru!
Yes, it is a tentative ID. I am looking forward to also hear from …

It is correctly pointed out that the fruiting calyx is not enlarged enough to call it Breynia retusa. The only alternative left is B. vitis-idaea which it is not. Hence I am giving it benefit of doubt and calling it B. retusa, and the variation in size may be an individual variation. I have no intention of calling it a distinct entity, rather it is intermediate between the two above mentioned species.


Thank you very much … for sorting the doubt.

Euphorbiaceae week- Phyllanthaceae-Breynia retusa-PKA3: Breynia retusa from Sagargad near Alibag, Maharashtra.
Date/Time: 11-07-2010 / 09:40AM
Previously it was stated to be in Euphorbiaceae but presently Breynia belongs to the family Phyllanthaceae.

–  the yellow ones are the male flowers, axilliary on filiform pedicles, the males in the lower and females greenish, in the upper axils. the globose redish fruit is seen with  the persistent calyx of  the female flowers !


‘Breynia retusa’ is called ‘Kangalli’ ‘कांगळी’ in Marathi.

Breynia lanceolata (Phyllanthaceae) : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)
Botanical name: Breynia lanceolata (Hook.f.) Welzen & Pruesapan. Basionym: Sauropus lanceolatus Hook.f. Synonym: Sauropus rhamnoides Blume.
Photographer: Dr. Santanu Dey.

Location: Nagaland, India.

Habit: Shrubs or small trees, sometimes scandent or climing.
Habitat: In inland forests or edges of primary forests at low altitudes.
Distribution: India (Nicobar Islands, North-eastern India), Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Lesser Sunda Islands.

After examining the type of Breynia lanceolata as well as Sauropus rhamnoides, I now feel that this is a misidentification. This should be the common species Breynia retusa.

I regret this misinformation.

Is this Breynia used in Homeopathy?
