I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Eriocaulon (Pl. click).
Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.
Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.
If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.
An excellent useful compilation. Those working in the genus would find it beneficial.
You have forwarded several photographs of Eriocaulon to me for identification.
I am sorry to inform you that it is not possible to identify Eriocaulons from photographs. The characters useful for identification are hidden inside the heads, and hence without dissection it is not possible to identify the species. The genus is overpopulated with species evolution is at a fast space in this genus as seen by the numerous new species described recently. Therefore it requires several leads to come to the conclusion.
Try … and his team of workers who are deeply engaged in the taxonomy of the genus.
At present I am out of touch with the genus and I am not aware whether my friend … is still working on the genus.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
