Hibiscus talbotii for confirmation : 10 posts by 4 authors. 5 images.
Could this be Hibiscus talbotii?
Observed in June 2017 at Bandipur Tiger Reserve, Karnataka.
at ~700msl
I did not observe the ventral side of the midrib to look for a gland, but peduncles are articulated.

Hibiscus lobatus (Murray) Kuntze??


Thanks for your response …

I believe Hibiscus lobatus does not have epicalyx. Here in individual seems to have a distinct epicalyx.

I too had thought similar to that of …, but I am not confident.

In the posted pictures, I think there are mix of buds and fruits. The conspicuous green structure in foreground of second pic, could be the fruit surrounded by sepals, and one behind – with hint of white, held in sepals, could be bud in blooming. I could be wrong.


Thanks, …, for the id.
To me also appears close to images at Hibiscus lobatus (Murray) Kuntze

Thanks … for the discussion.

I hope you agree with the id.

Please let us know, if any different ID is deduced.

Flower for id pl.
Is this Hibiscus lobatus ? Unfortunately forgot to click leaves.
Location – Sirsi ( North Karnataka)
Date – September 2019

Other than being a small plant, small flower, early leaves unlobed, later three lobed……. absence of epicalyx is the key to ID.


so until you meet this plant again. photograph it a bit more. that’s it, …, sorry.


Thanks … Yes, I thought so. It will be difficult to id it without leaves details and I forgot to click the leaves in a hurry.


that’s ok. we all do that esp. when there is family or friends rushing to go see something or go eat!!!


Based on comparative images at Hibiscus, Hibiscus lobatus (Murray) Kuntze is possible as per images and details herein.

Looks different from another closer species of Hibiscus micranthus L.f.  as per images and details herein.

Hibiscus lobatus  (Murray) Kuntze

flower looks like the example in FOI but photo and id by the same person. i thought one needs to see the leaves too


Thanks, … I am quite sure of this ID.
Pavonia spp. flowers do look like those of Hibiscus lobatus, BUT the buds, calyx, epicalyx differ.
Leaves of the posted plant are relatively distant from the blooming flower.

I will not dare to get into middle of those plants for sake of leaves – paranoid of leeches.


stay away from leaches. i do. mosquitoes too


Agree with … A common plant in Coorg & Mysore districts occuring in wastelands.


… has a case. flower petal markings are similar. petal shape may be not fully discernible, because flower in that pic from … is not fully open.
(on this page of our website: … case is the earliest, and hence on top of the page.)

but he does show the leaves i was expecting.


This flower is not Hibiscus lobatus, … Flower in its first glance made me think. I checked my collection and then I say …

Shape of petal, calyx (or epicalyx), anther column, and fruit much longer than calyx / epicalyx …all say it is not H. lobatus.
Stigma not long-trifid goes against Hibiscus hirtus.
Similarly I can rule out H. obtusilobus, since I am familiar with the species.
Flower looks much closer to Pavonia zeylanica once I had in Surat, sadly not seen a single plant for last 3 years …

A Pavonia sp. wd be my guess.


I  am not sure but looks more close to H. lobatus.


OK … We will wait for comments.


Images match with Hibiscus lobatus and not Pavonia zeylanica


that’s true. its not any of the Pavonias i have seen


Thank you very much … for validation.
…, I am sure my plant is Hibiscus lobatus.

Pavonia zeylanica has those tell-tale sepal-like bracts, filament-like, hairy … can be seen in any of the posts in eFI or at FoI.
