As per efi thread : Hibiscus furcatus Wall. is the synonym of H. surattensis L., a name used in FBI and still holding true (fork has one spoon shaped appendage and one small erect linear branch; stipules large leafy ear-shaped; leaves 3-5-fid)
Hibiscus furcatus Roxb. described in FBI and now correctly known as H. hispidissimus Griff. (both forks linear; stipules lanceolate-oblong; leaves entire or 3-lobed)
Hibiscus furcatus Willd., a synonym of Hibiscus rostellatus Guill. & Perr. an African plant not found in India
Other expected species in India, cultivated or naturalised from this group (forked epicalyx segments) include.
Hibiscus radiatus Willd. epicalyx 8-10, with linear fork segments, stipules linear; leaves deeply 3-5 lobed.
Hibiscus acetosella: epicalyx 9-10, apically forked, leaves irregularly 3-5 lobed.
Hibiscus cannabinus looks similar to above two species but is distinct in deeply 3-7-parted leaves and importantly with epicalyx segments not being forked.
Malvaceae week- Hibiscus cannabinus from Kaithal: The attached pics were taken from Kaithal last year, this plant used to be cultivated few years back for its fibre, now our area has almost totally confined to wheat-rice rotation. For our area, it is pleasure to find this in flowering, which, unfortunately, I could not.
Here are mine flowers from Village Atta near samalkha (Panipat).

This shrub was seen in field borders of a village, probably planted.
This was earlier cultivated on large scale here, now a days probably not cultivated in our area..

Was the flower whitish or creamish?
This was growing wild in all the usual litter strewn around on the lake bank but ofcourse i found it beautiful all
Wanted to ask the experts whether the Ran Bhendi also has varities? Because I have noticed whitish, creamish and yellowish flowers. Sometimes the red colour too varies.
I think appears close to images at Hibiscus cannabinus L.
