Fumaria indica from Kaithal-2012: This one is Fumaria indica (Haussk.) Pugsley, Journ. Linn. Soc. Bot. 44: 313, 1919;
A pale green, diffuse, glaucous, annual herb. Leaves 2-3 pinnatisect, ultimate segments linear-lanceolate, entire, apiculate. Flowers in leaf-opposed racemes, 0.6-0.7 cm, pale pink. Sepals ovate-lanceolate, acute, incised dentate. Fruit subglobose, rugose, 0.4 cm in diameter.
This plant is very common during late winter and is found growing with other seasonal weeds in moist localities of the waste places as well as along field borders. Shot from my village in Kaithal in January 2012.

Perhaps it would be interesting to know whether both F. indica and F. vaillantii grow in India or not, and what is this species. Here is key from eFlora of Pakistan

Bracts equalling or slightly longer than pedicel in fruits; corolla pale pinkish to white; fruits usually rounded or very obtuse at apex; leaf segments obscurely channelled or not Fumaria indica

+Bracts shorter than pedicel (1/2-3/4 as long) in fruits; corolla ± pink-violet with dark tips; fruits usually minutely apiculate (or obtuse); leaf segments flat Fumaria vaillantii


Thanks … Sir for the inputs and a new query which is very relevant and requires further research…

(Haussk.) Pugs. in the family Fumariaceae is a common weedy herb in Uttarakhand.
It is blooming nowadays (15.1.13).
Locally, it is known as “Pitt-papra or Khairua”.
The plant is diuretic.
In the chilly mornings of North India the entire plant remain covered with dew-drops which glitter in early sun.

That is splendid, …


Loved the close-up shot…splendid!!


It is a common plant but reveals its beauty only when watched very closely!

Fumaria parviflora Willd. ? from Hooghly:

  • Bengal Plants describes only one FumariaFumaria parviflora Lamk.; F. I. iii. 217; F. B. I. i. 128; E. D. F. 723
  • F. B. I. i. 128. describes only one – Fumaria parviflora subsp. vaillantii Loisel. (sp.)
  • F. I. iii. 217, describes only one – Fumaria parviflora Willd. iii. p. 868. and the description goes thus – “Annual, diffuse……. …… Beng. BUN SULPA …… A native of Bengal ….. It has the habit of F. officinalis but in the Indian plant, the ultimate segments of the leaves are filiform and the stigma bifid”
  • Hortus Suburbanus Calcuttensis describes F. parviflora Lam, and F. officinalis L.

I found this herb in a kitchen garden, well in villages it is hard to demark a kitchen garden with that of agri-land, on 19-12-12, in Hooghly.


Perhaps this should help

Both species known to occur in India are described.

I read the discussion in Sir’s post while searching the ID of this plant.


efi link: /species/m—z/p/papaveraceae/fumaria/fumaria-indica


I think it is Fumaria parviflora subsp. vaillantii Loisel of F. B. I. i. 128., the current accepted name of which is Fumaria vaillantii Loisel., for its apiculate fruits and bracts shorter than pedicel.


We have KEy & distribution from BSI 

In spite of having characters more with vaillantii it is F. indica (Haussk.) Pugsley as per BSI distribution (with an end note!).

Please correct it, …


I think we should go with F. indica. I have lot of specimens from Kashmir and Uttarakhand. In all bracts are significantly longer than pedicel in flower, even longer in fruit, fruit globose.


Agreed Sir, interestingly regarding flower colour BSI key and BSI descriptions do not match!
