Croton bonplandianum from Hooghly: This is a common wild herb found along roadside hedges.
I remember that we used to apply its faintly milky white latex on our minor wounds & bruises while playing in our childhood. Much later i heard / read (?) that like our own saliva plant sap also contains lysozyme that helps fight bacteria and thereby quicken healing of wounds.
Species : Croton bonplandianum Baill.
Habit & Habitat : wild herb, roadside, uncultivated area
Date : 15-03-12, 10.15 a.m.
Place : Hooghly, WB

Thank you … for confirming. The Bengali name given to this plant is BON-TULASI, but we call it simply BON-GACHH (bon = wild, junglee; GACHH = any herb, shrub or tree)

Thanks for this upload sir, I was surprised to see that the latex was used by children for amusement, they blow this to form bubbles as like soap solution..

Attaching a collage of Croton bonplandianum. Whenever I saw this Jewel Bug I saw it on this plant. This is the breeding time for this beautiful bug. Some literature say that the local name of the plant is BAN- TULSI, but I have not met anyone who identifies this plant by this name. 


nice colors and love the pics. we see this bug in the lower gangetic plain also. what do their eggs look like? do they lay them on this plant?

Attaching three collages on the subject. In one the plant is depicted. Adult insect is in another collage.

In another collage nymph of the insect are shown. All are in the same plant species. At this time you find this bug on almost all the plant species we are talking about.
