Flora of China gives the following keys:
7 (6) Stipules auriculate; stem prickles without basal tubercle, curved. 20 H. surattensis
+ Stipules narrowly lanceolate; stem prickles with prominent basal tubercle, straight. 21 H. hispidissimus

I checked all post in efi site at Hibiscus hispidissimus Griff. and Hibiscus surattensis L. – these seems to be OK. Determination based on stem prickles may be confusing. So better to go with the stipules.
.
Keys in the book in Flora of Karnataka bases keys between the two only on Stipules and not on stem prickles.

Key in BSI Flora of India

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.

I think you are correct

Kindly check the typo Hibiscus hispidissimus

Hibiscus surattensis L. from Guwahati:  Are attached images are Hibiscus surattensis L.? Please confirm the ID.
Date :30/10/2012
Location: Maligaon, 1 No. Gate, Guwahati-11 [Dist- Kamrup(Metro)]
Habitat: Grows on road side, waste places
Habit :Sub shrub
Leaf : Simple, (Like Hibiscus surattensis palmately 3-5-lobed leaf blade is not prominent)
Stem : prickle present ,
Flower : Large, Yellow in colour


It can’t be H. surattensis in which stipules are very large and auriculate, prickles small curved without bulbous base, and outer branch of epicalyx tip ovate-elliptic:

In your plant you can see darker swollen base of prickles, outer epicalyx branch almost oblong in shape and stipules linear-lanceolate, all suggesting H. hipidissimus (syn: H. furcatus)



Attached images are Hibiscus hispidissimus Griff. from Assam.

Yes it is Hibiscus surattensis

Plant identity corrected by … as Hibiscus hispidissimus


Hibiscus hispidissimus Griff. (syn: H. aculeatus Roxb; H. furcatus DC.) stipules lanceolate (not broad and auriculate), prickles with basal tubercle (basal tubercle absent in H. surattensis).



Wild flower for ID,
The circular leaf arrangement appears as if a protective circle arround the flower.

This is an interesting plant.

teh circular objects are not Leaves tehyare the leafy epicalyx,
common in Malvaceae family.
Hibiscus furcatus also show such leafy epicalyx and also teh red
glands seen in your pic. this is not H. furcatus.
checkout with H. surrattensis and H. radiatus which also shows leafy
epicalyx.


This flowering plant looks very similar to H. surrattensis
Here is a link Zimbabwe Flora

 


… link clearly states it as Hibiscus surrattensis

This glamourous flower is from the plant Hibiscus surrattensis.

Seems to be Hibiscus hspidissimus (syn. H. furcatus)


This should be Bush Sorrel (Hibiscus surattensis)

The interestingly shaped sepals (actually bracts) are an identifying feature.


how do you differentiate it from Hibiscus trionum [INGLE VOL3 PG396]


Hibiscus surattensis: Stem with recurved prickles; epicalyx lobes 8-10 with foliaceous appendages at or above middle, one branch nearly 1-2 cm long, second 0.7-1 cm long; stipules auriculate, foliacous, ca 5 mm. 
Hibiscus trionum: Prickles absent; epicalyx lobes 12, filiform, without appendages, 8 mm long; stipules filiform, ca 7 mm.

For best results Blister beetle feeding on Hibiscus rosa-sinensis

Dear friends, please validate the ID;
Habit: sub-shrub, standing about a metre high
Habitat: found growing in wild scrub, in town

I am confused whether or not H. hispidissimus.


yes it looks like Hibiscus hispidissimus.


H. radiatus. Pls note 8-10 forked inv bractsH. hispidissimus is armed climber.


… on going through references for H. radiatus, the flower is consistently shown in dark pink colour. Please help. Any chance of H. surattensis ?


Involucral bracts forked or with leafy appendages is the key character for H. radiatus and this can be clearly seen in your pictures. Pls refrain from photo tallying from internet. The dark pink flower should be H. sabdariffa


Many thanks … for clarifications.

From what I read in Malvaceae of southern peninsular India … H. radiatus comes in both colours (yellow as well as dark pink); H. sabdariffa comes in yellow with purplish centre, and I will try to understand about the involucre bracts found in various species and return to this post.


This is Hibiscus hispidissimus Griff. as per keys and details herein.
