I am at a loss that I did not contact you earlier for contributing some images for publication in the Flora of India Volume 23.  I was not knowing about your photography at all. I was searching everywhere for good photos of Euphorbiaceae.  Now it is too late.  the Volume is already published by Botanical Survey of India.  Date of publication 31st Oct. 2012.

Correct identification Sir.
