Justicia or Rostellularia sp?


Justicia & Rostellularia species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


Possibly Justicia procumbens L. Link


The plant seems Rostellularia adscendens


Sir,

Do we count Justicia procumbens L. and Rostellularia adscendens (R.Br.) R.M.Barker two different taxa?
Several botanical websites think they are synonymous. One Australian Govt. website thinks 5 subspecies of Rostellularia adscendens (R.Br.) R.M.Barker have been distinguished. What would be Indian species? Specially at NE India?
Another Australian site thinks Rostellularia adscendens (R.Br.) R.M.Barker is synonymous with – “Justicia notha C.B.Clarke, Flora of British India 4: 537(1885), Type: INDIA?; Herb. Wight.”. Should we accept this one?
There is another species Justicia assamica Clarke, FBI. iv. 537; which is allied to J. notha and J. khasiana (Flora of British India, vol4). As per FBI J. notha Clarke has flowers with 1/3 rd inch corolla.
Or should we accept the following –
Justicia procumbens L. var. latispica Clarke, Flora of British India 4: 539(1885)?

The later being distributed in Assam region and synonymous with Justicia mollissima (Nees) Y.F. Deng & T.F. Daniel as per TPL.

¿ Justicia procumbens ?  

Dear friends,
Please help validate whether Justicia procumbens. The tiny flowered Justica confuse me.

Before I could sort them out, names of Rungia and Rostellularia are changing to Justicia …seen in FOI… Rostellularia crinita has become Justicia neesi, Justicia procumbens has changed to Rostellularia procumbens …not only that …in FOI two images in Justicia procumbens are different in their spikes !!! One image is by you, …, and it looks different than this post.

Leaves here are orbicular, much different than leaves in efi page for J. procumbens.


Thanks … for pointing out.
“The” confusion for me are leaves and length of inflorescence – they vary in sites and references.
My posted plant may not be Justicia procumbens, but can not guess any further.
Will wait for more comments.

Is there any expert on these similar looking Justcia species ?
I think I have to sit for a few days to sort our plants in eif site and possibly in FOI.

Thanks … for making a call for Justicia and allied genera expert.


My personal favorite Rungia repens too has changed name ….and it appears in more than one species page !

Similarly, Rungia pectinata and Rungia parviflora ….I am unable to make a call whether a particular specimen in field is former or latter !


Thanks … for making a call for Justicia and allied genera expert.


I too with Justicia procumbens
