On 21/9/08 in Hyderabad, AP. I hope is correct.

Your identification is correct.


Here is a feedback on these images on WikimediaCommons:
“Possibly aestuans not trilocularis as per Ticket:2009050710078432. According to m:OTRS Ticket:2009050710078432, a source for the rename is: “Edmonds JM. 1990. Herbarium Survey of African Corchorus L species. Systematic and Ecogeographic Studies on Crop Genepools 4″, tho I’m not able to verify this””
Can experts confirm or otherwise pl.?

I attached a page of Bhandari Flora For ID confirmation
