Buchnera hispida … http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2685035
atleast in Maharshtra all Orobancaceae members are parasite and without stem and leaves and roots…
I don’t think there is need to contest when … has provided the link as proof. Here are more proofs:
Herb for Id from Chakrata: 7 images.
This small herb with beautiful pink-purple flowers was photographed in September 2011 from near Chakrata (Uttarakhand). I think this is a species of Buchnera. Hope to find the proper identification.
I think Buchnera hispida
Buchnera hispida From me too.
Yes … I located mine also, Buchnera hispida identified from Flora Simlensis. I find this Flora very handy for most Himalayan plants.
I had earlier uploaded a similar plant from Morni Hills, identity could not be concluded up to species level, I will again resurface the mail or re-upload the same for identification. That was a Buchnera species.
Hai this was my post earlier and identified as Buchnera hispida by … and …

Scrophulariaceae Fortnight: Buchnera from Gori Valley- NS 13 : Attachments (5). 3 posts by 2 authors.
These pics were recorded from Gori valley area.. wanted to know if these are same Buchnera hispida as posted earlier from Chakrata… the differences I could make out are
1. size and number of flowers, here they are smaller and crowded towards the apex,
2. shape of petals- here they are nearly elliptic, in the previous post slightly emarginate,
3. each petals here has a darker streak here
4. the plant here is comparatively less hairy..
Still my search leads me to Buchnera hispida only.. your opinion please.. FoC records B. cruciata (Syn. B. densiflora) from N India..
