Help ID this weed with small pink flowers. Quite prevalent on roadsides


One more picture of the same weed 


Erodium cicutarium


Couldn’t notice that it is a Geraniaceae member due to closed flowers. … has IDed it in spite of that.

Flora of Chakrata- Erodium cicutarium for validation : Attachments (4). 10 posts by 6 authors.

This small, spreading, prostrate herb was shot from Chakrata region this August..
I hope this should be Erodium cicutarium (L.) L’Herit. Kindly validate the id, this was my first seeing this plant, earlier upload on the forum is by … from Kashmir..

Plant from Kashmir has flowers in umbel and ultimate leaf segments are a bit differently shaped. May be a different species. Seeing it first time.


Erodium species in efi so far 


Providing the keys to species of Erodium occurring in India, as given by Malhotra (1997) in Flora of India vol-4 published by BSI. Hope it will help in determining ID.

  A. Beak of mericarps plumose on ventral face with long soft cilia…………………E.oxyrrhynchum

A’     A’. Beak of mericarps ventrally clothed with rigid setae that disappear towards tip

B. Leaves velvety beneath clothed with rigid setae that disappear towards tip.. E.tibetanum

B’. Leaves not velvety beneath, shortly pubescent, sepals awned or mucronate, mericarps pitted below      beak

                C. Sepals awned, filaments toothed on one side ……………………..E.stephanianum

                C’. Sepals mucronate, filaments glabrous, not toothed 

                                D. Apical pits of mericarp glandular ………………………….E.moschatum

                                D’. Apical pits of mericarps eglandular ………………………E.cicutarium

The species known from Uttarakhand are E.cicutarium and E.stephanianum. Of these E.stephanianum have long awned sepals, as long as breadth of sepal, which once again suggest it as E.cicutarium. Probably doubt expressed by me earlier is doubtful now. 


I think E. cicutarium which shows a lot of variation in segmentation of leaves in populations I have seen in Kashmir. E. stephanium which looks similar has very long awns on sepals very conspicuous. E. moschatum which has become naturalised recently has different leaves, leaflets split not even up to 1/4 depth, whereas in E. cicutarium there are generally split to middle or even deeper. I have photographed it in California. …(deliberately or not) has correctly omitted the error in the original key of Flora of India.


Thanks for the discussion … I should now take this as Erodium cicutarium..

This flower was growing wild in the lawns of the Bratislava castle, Slovakia in May 2016.
Is this some Erodium species?


Geranium cicutarium?


Geranium cicutarium


Thank you … for the ID. Geranium cicutarium is also known as Erodium cicutarium.

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Picture%20712.jpg

 

wild flower for ID (26/06/2011 NSJ-01)
A wild flower for ID.
Location – Roadside, on the way to Pahalgam from Srinagar
Habitat – Appears to be wild herb, around 8 to 10 inches tall
Photo taken – June 2011


Geranium, Species can’t be ascertained without clear view of leaves.


This looks different from images we have so far as per comparative images at Geranium


I think it should be Erodium cicutarium (L.) L’Hér. as per images herein.
