VOF Week: Urticaceae for id from the Trek:
I think yes. Nice photographs
Pls see this thread also
Thanks for the link … now my plant looks different….
I think it is P hirta
Yes, you are right..thanks a lot..
Yes … We had a long discussion on it when uploaded from Chakrata in the link that you provided. P. pentandra has upper flowering part with highly decreased leaves. The above plant is P. hirta var hirta. I am enclosing important paper on old world Pouzolzia. (it is too big for attachment. I can send to personal email ID if someone wants).
VoF Week: Pouzolzia hirta from way to Ghangriya:
Yes, looks like same…thanks…
Herb for ID (CRF):
Please help me to ID this herb
Date/Time- 24-8-8/ 13.15
– Gonostegia hirta (Urticaceae) I suppose.
Flora of Manipur: Pouzolzia:
Pouzolzia frondosa from Manipur.
This plant reminds me of a incident from my Bachelor classes where one fellow identified it Leucas aspera
Very interesting species, with unique leaves. But could not find any description for it. efloras.org does not report it.
I think the id of this species needs to be verified. I understand that the name Pouzolzia frondoa is synonym of Boehmeria viminea i.e. Pouzolzia viminea and all these are synonymized under P. sanguinea in Fl of Nepal http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=200006428. However the illustration in this link is not matching to my plant. So please help to id my plant.
The name Pouzolzia frondosa doesn’t appear in Flora of British India Vol 5. Medicinal Plants of Manipur by S.C. Sinha reports one species Pouzolzia viminea, but that one has alternately arranged leaves, which are stalked.
Pouzolzia frondosa Kuntze is based on Boehmeria frondosa, which is regarded as doubtful synonym of P. viminea in FBI
Boehneria frondosa Don is considered as synonym of Villebrunea frutescens (Thunb.) Blume in Eflora of Pakistan and Oreocnide frutescens (Thunb.) Miquel in eFlora of China. It has alternate, broader elliptic to ovate leaves white tomentose beneath.
Our plant seems to have much narrower leaves nearly linear-lanceolate, opposite and flowers in axillary clusters.
Coincidently both above eFlora cite Boehmeria frondosa as synonym, but none mentions Pouzolzia frondosa, although Kuntze clearly cites Boehmeria frondosa Don. The link has to be clearly established because Pouzolzia has mostly opposite leaves and sessile axillary clusters as seen in our specimens but not in above two eFloras.
may be some Heydiotis
For me it is hard to find any trace of inferior ovary
I find closest match with Pouzolzia hirta now correctly known as Gonostegia hirta.
The plant was uploaded by …. as Pouzolzia frondosa (D. Don) Kuntze. Type type study of basionym Boehmeria frondosa on which this combination was made was shown by Hara to actually belong to genus Oreocnide, and all specimens referable to Pouzolzia sanguinea as suggested by … later on. On detailed analysis I had suggested the plant to be P. hirta and I go by the same statement.
It can’t be P. sanguinea as leaves are toothed in that totally entire here. Your views please

I think it should be P. hirta (L.) Hassk. var. hirta (Images by Nidhan Singh (Id by Balkar Singh), Raju Das (id by Ritesh Kumar Choudhary), Balkar Singh (validated by Nidhan Singh & Gurcharan Singh) & Ritesh Kumar Choudhary & as per keys at Pouzolzia

Nice pics … I think Pouzolzia hirta.. Urticaceae
Pouzolzia hirta (Bl.) Hassk. (accepted name)
GBIF, CoL and WFO says Gonostegia hirta (Blume) Miq. is the accepted name where as POWO says Gonostegia triandra Miq. is the accepted name which looks different.
I think id is OK.
