Echinops echinatus in FOI : 6 posts by 3 authors.
Image of Echinops echinatus in FOI by … should be of Echinops sphaerocephalus as per images, details and references herein.
I request … to pl. correct.
According to Plants of the World Online, Echinops sphaerocephalus L. is not distributed in India at all!
I presume the pics on FOI were clicked in the wild.
pictures at FOI are certainly from wild.
Whether spines conspicuously rising out of flower head is a feature differentiating E. echinatus from another species, or is just a variation – needs checking.
The Echinops sphaerocephalus L. arose with my post of Echinops for validation at facebook.
From the discussion, it looked like the species is found in north-western parts of India.
Hope we reach to correct ID.
I am certain about it as I created the page Echinops sphaerocephalus after detailed search. Pl. check references herein.
Somebody needs to publish it to finally make these records for India.
