Hoya ‎(Apocynaceae) : 3 posts by 1 author.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Hoya (Pl. click).

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.

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


You missed out Hoya retusa from the Western Ghats


Thanks, … It has been included now.


I have added list of Indian species of Hoya based on Karthikeyan et al (2009).


Thanks a lot, …,
Following seems to be missing from other literature:

H. parviflora Wight and H. shepherdii Short ex Hook are not mentioned in this document.
H. pendula is taken as synonym of H. alexicaca.
H. parasitica is taken as synonym of H. verticillata.

.

Pl. go through Hoya page (‎‎‎Apocynaceae) with images of species in efloraofindia (done by me).

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know.
If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), it will be really nice. Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
