Elytraria acaulis from Kurukshetra-NS July 01 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5)

Thought of sharing this tiny herb shot from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, Haryana in July 2015. Not a common one in my state, in fact, I could not see it anywhere else till now.
…, I hope you will be able to tell its distribtional status in Delhi, what I have observed leads me to think that this herb is not a successful invader of new localities.

Elytraria acaulis… Acanthaceae


…, it grows in Ridge forest in Delhi, mostly under shade, though not very common.
