Another weed from rice fields of Cuttack. Possibly Ludwigia ?
I agree with you, these are common here too, maybe Ludwigia parviflora Roxb. – http://plantillustrations.org/illustration.php?id_illustration=44981.
Yes it does seem like L. parviflora which is a common weed of rice.
I think it is more closer to Ludwigia octovalvis (Jacq.) Raven as per keys at Ludwigia as per The Genus Ludwigia (Onagraceae) in India by I.C. Barua- Rheedea Vol. 20 (1) 59-70 2010 (pdf available in this efi thread) rather than images at Ludwigia perennis L.

OOTHECA ( EGG CASE ) ON LUDWIGIA OCTOVALVIS : 4 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (1)
In my childhood I have seen froth like substance on some plants. Elders used to tell the substance is the spit of Monitor Lizard and is poisonous. I heard another story narrated by an old lady. As per that story the substance is the spit of ghost (BHOOT). But literature says it is the egg case of some insect (may be praying mantis). Other day I saw this substance on a Balsam plant. In the attached image ootheca is on Ludwigia octovavis.
Journal of experimental biology has nice paper this year’s february
but I am not sure we have this same species in West Bengal. does any body have data?
