I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Glochidion

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.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


I feel some of the images at Glochidion hohenackeri and Glochidion ellipticum may not be correctly identified.
May I request you to pl. check and point out the wrong identifications, where ever possible.


G. hohenackeri will have a button-like style while G. ellipticum has short columnar style. Very easy to distinguish.


The images are indeed a mixture of G. ellipticum, G. candolleanum and G. hohenackeri.


May I request you to pl. sort them out. Pl. tell me which are the wrong ones with id.


How to sort out?


Under G. hohenackeri in the website, the two images as attached are different (first two images): Imnage 1: A 184 = G. candolleanum. Image 2: Glochidion ellipticum (4) = G. hohenackeri var. johnstonei.

Under Glochidion ellipticum:
Under G. ellipticum, three images are of G. hohenackeri while one is Breynia trinervia. Attached herewith. (Nos. 4-6). Identity is given by me on the legend of the images.
Under G. candolleanum, both are okay.


Thanks, … Your may just give the link (by copying it) and remarks against that.

For now I wil take care as stated by you.

I have corrected these now in efi group as well as in efi site.
Pl. see if there are no further misidentification at Glochidion hohenackeri and Glochidion ellipticum
