Flowers pale blue or white., tubular 6-12 mm long, in short terminal stalked clusters arising directly from rootstalk, and leaves in a lax rosette, and with a long slender runners. Corolla 2 lipped, the upper lip darker with 2 short triangular lobes, the lower lip much larger, with pale rounded lobes and the throat with 2 orange swellings within; calyx lobes triangular blunt. Runners several, rooting at nodes. Basal leaves broadly ovate, rounded toothed, 2.5-8 cm, sometimes pinnately lobed near the base, narrowed to a short leaf stalk; flowering stems mostly 6-8 cm.

Mazus pumilus looks similar to M. surculosus, but the orange stripes on the lower lip are longer in latter. In addition the species can be differentiated as under:
M. pumilus: Annuals, up to 30 cm tall, stems glabrous or with short hairs; basal leaves usually shed at flowering time; flowers mostly in upper part of inflorescence; calyx lobes ovate, as long as tube, acute; middle lobe of lower lip smaller than lateral lobes; lobes of upper lip triangular-ovate; capsule globose
M. surculosus: Perennials, up to 8 cm tall, stem with long white hairs; basal leaves forming a rosette present at flowering time; flowers almost from base of raceme, lax; calyx lobes 1/3 as long as calyx, broadly ovate with obtuse to subacute tip; middle lobe of lower lip longer than lateral lobes; lobes of upper lip suborbicular; capsule ovoid

Mazus surculosus D.Don is a frequent prostrate herb above 1000m in Uttarakhand. It differs from M.pumilus, a more common species in Uttarakhand at lower altitude in having prostrate runners.
Photographed near Mehalchauri Chamoli district, Uttarakhand.

Mazus was previously in Scrophulariaceae but now it is in Phrymaceae.


Very good photographs … Again Majus in the subject line. Should be Mazus.

This small plant with a tiny flower was very near home and I made a few photos intending to have a closer look later in the evening. Unfortunately, we had a heavy shower this afternoon and I couldn’t find the flower again. I am hoping it is there still buried perhaps under leaves and such.
Mazus surculosus (flowersofindia webpage gives the common name as Suckering Mazus taking it from mazos which is Greek for a teat)

nice to see the basal rosette of leaves
what a lot of chlorophyll for this tiny one flower

i guess that tiny flower need a lot of food and energy to form

Found a white Mazus on my walk today. Is it normal? To me it looks like M. surculosus only but I could be wrong. Please advise. 3 images.


The genus Mazus is no longer in the Scrophulariaceae family but Phymaceae which includes
The Kew Herbarium image:
Photos:
There are two species of Mazus to consider.  In ‘Flora Simlensis’ there is also M.rugosus -which Stewart and ‘The Plant List’ has this as M.japonicus.
Flora Simlensis has M.japonicus as the common species at Shimla – he distinguishes it by the lack of runners and calyx lobed half-way down cf. shortly toothed in M.surculosus.
Your images show runners.  I don’t think that Flora Simlensis calyx characteristic holds true, so M.surculosus does seem the most likely.
I have visited Manali several times.  In the mid-1980s I led botanical tours to Lahoul, with Manali as the base, recording Mazus surculosus in the Deodar forest there but did not consider other species at the time.

Kindly identify this small herb with purple flowers, photographed in South Sikkim in May 2015


Is it some kind of Mazus sp?


Looks like Mazus sp to me


Mazus species so far in efi: Mazus pumilus & Mazus surculosus


I think these match with images of Mazus surculosus


I agree with … We have them here in Dharamshala and I have seen these growing up to 2500m.

Mazus surculosus

I did not not find Mazus harmandii as syn of Mazus surculosus in POWO, CoL and GBIF !

You are right. I had picked up this synonym from

So what we do ? Take it as Syn ?


Mazus harmandii is now an accepted name of a different plant:

OK …!
