This plant seems to be Commelina paludosa
This in Commelina paludosa Blume
Attaching a new set from the same population at the same place, this time the flowers are fresh.
Yes It is Commelina paludosa.
Thank you very much for confirming the ID.
But FoI has different looking plant
http://www.flowersofindia.Swamp%20Dayflower.html. is Commelina diffusa only.
This set is from my earlier thread, has been kept under C. paludosa Bl.
While BSI treats the taxon synonymous with C. maculata Edgew., FoC thinks two are different taxa http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=107770#KEY-1-6.
Not only that, Haines thought C. suffurticosa & C. kurzii should be similar looking.
We do not have C. paludosa Bl. in India (as per BSI checklist).
Of two specimen (spathe) I examined yesterday one had a single trigonal trilocular capsule while the other had two capsules, one trilocular and the other bilocular. A third spathe had one flattened element that might be its seed!
Possibly Commelina paludosa, common on the bank of Hooghly.
