The perfoliate nature of the leaves nicely depicted. How common is the species as compared to C.diffusa?


I believe this C. perfoliata is found in southern Western Ghats, though not sure whether it occurs as commonly as C. diffusa.

ANNOV06 Canscora sp. for identification : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (11).

The uploaded photos are in 3 parts-
1) Set 1
2) Set 2
3) Comparison of Set 1 and 2 (Canscora sp. of Set 1 on the right and Canscora sp. of Set 2 on the left)
Set 1 and Set 2 were found growing within 50 metres of each other. I am confused if they are both the same species.
Nelliyampathy, Kerala
Growing in the grasslands on hill slopes
8th November 2014


Canscora species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


I think both are Canscora perfoliata Lam.


Thank you for validating sir.


…, thank you for all your feedbacks. Please do not hesitate to oppose any ID you are not satisfied with. I am also a learner here.

Canscora alata (Roth) Wall (= C. decussata(Roxb.) Schult. & Schult f.,
erect wild herb from Kukke Subramanya area of South Canara, Karnataka, altitude around 250mI


It appears close to images at Canscora perfoliata Lam. 


This small herb was recorded from Morni Hills, Haryana.
After discussions with experts (thanks to …), my insufficient pics were tentatively identified as Canscora decussata…
I could not plan a visit to the area again to record more pics of the same.. posting again for some hints..
I regret for not having good images..

Canscora decussata and C. alata are synonymes. C. alata is valid name


It appears close to images at Canscora perfoliata Lam. as per images herein & as per Shahina PM, Santhosh Nampy. 2014. A taxonomic revision of the genus Canscora in South India, and the erection of the new genus Canscorinella (Canscorinae, Gentianaceae) with two new combinations.” Phytotaxa 164(4): 201–225. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.11646/phytotaxa.164.4.1  though no distribution is given in North India. So pl. check. 


Thanks …, I need to recollect this plant before anything, but I have not been successful in finding it again till now…!!

Which Canscora species : Attachments (1).  6 posts by 5 authors.

Flowering observed in mid of October in Kanha Tiger Reserve (Part of Satpuda range and Maikal Range – Madhya Pradesh). Is it Canscora Pauciflora (Which is otherwise suppose to be endemic to Western Ghat
Complex).


is it Canscora decussata????


Without additional information and pictures to see the habit leaves and calyx it would be difficult to reach id confirmation.
My guess is C. diffusa but has to check the same with any reliable flora.


I haven`t seen C diffusa having white color flowers….. usually it is pink . And mid of october, in my per se is too early for this tiny herb.


I Agree with …
From the image it seems to be C. diffusa. The species shows colour variation from pink to white.

From winged calyx, it should be Canscora perfoliata Lam.

Please check Canscora alata ?

Its Canscora decussata

I think more closer to images at Canscora perfoliata Lam. rather than those at Canscora alata (Roth) Wall. (syn. Canscora decussata (Roxburgh) Roemer & Schultes) as per comparative images at Canscora
