Thanks for posting this plant. I collected it from Panchmari but alas there was no flower


I had never seen this plant so far. Thanks … for posting.
At first look i thought that it some distorted form of Spermacoce ocymoides.


… you are uploading ACEs of Rubiaceae members. Many thanks for sharing.
Agreeing with … thought – me too would have passed it off as Spermacoce ocymoides.

Saw this plant at the Sadawaghapur plateau near Satara. MH in October 2019.
Seems to be some Rubiaceae member.
Requested to please provide ID, if possible.

Spermacoce sp.


I guess Spermacoce ocymoides Burm.f. !


It could be Mitracarpus hirtus,

Thanks you … for possible IDs.
Mitracarpus hirtus stems do not look hairy as per Mitracarpus, however, some pics in Spermacoce ocymoides do look hairy.
The posted plant stem is very hairy as can be seen in Pic 2.
Would request further help from members.

Please cross verify with Fwd: Spermacoce ocymoides Burm.f. (accepted name) ??? if it matches?

Yes …, it does seem to match your plant.
Let see if we get validation from others as well.

ID suggested on FB as well – Spermacoce ocymoides

Can anybody find out the difference/ keys between Spermacoce ocymoides and Mitracarpus hirtus (syn: Spermacoce hirta L.) ?

Ovules many in each locule….Mitracarpus
Ovule single in each locule…..Spermacoce,


Thanks, …  But we want keys/ differences that we can check in a flowering plant.

That both plants have most of the characters overlapping …,

As I am not finding the difference between the two online and also the details from the same source. Let us examine their descriptions for clues.
Mitracarpus hirtus (Linnaeus) Candolle from Flora of China:

But description in Flora of Thailand  appears to be sketchy as also in Flora of Peninsular India.
Spermacoce ocymoides Burm.f. looks much different as per images and specimens at GBIF as below:
In view I will go for Mitracarpus hirtus (Linnaeus) Candolle

I could not find Spermacoce ocymoides Burm.f. in either Flora of China or Flora of Pakistan.

You are right, … I think we need to have photos of all species of this kind of confusing genera for a clear understanding. So far we have pictures of Spermacoce articularis, pusilla, and stricta isn’t it?


Thanks a lot, … I think only Spermacoce articularis, pusilla, and hispida.

Some confusion:
1. Spermacoce ocymoides Burm.f. not listed in Nepal but CoL showing
    syn as Borreria laevicaulis (Miq.) Ridl. which is listed in Nepal.
2. Google showing different plants for both ID.

I have a problem with this specie, I attach some photos. I need you help to confirm, what is the name of this plant?
I check on the Internet maybe is Spermacoce ocymoides or Borreria ocymoides.
Do you have the specific name?

I think yes- matches with images at threads under Spermacoce ocymoides in efloraofindia
