Herb. Habitat- Tropical grassland near evergreen forest. Central Western Ghats, Karnataka. August 2017

Aneilema sp

It appears to be Murdannia dimorpha, normally found at graslands during end of  monsoon.

To me appears more closer to images at Murdannia nudiflora rather than those at Murdannia dimorpha

Kindly examine and identify this plant 

Habit:    Herb 

Habitat:By road margin 

Sighting:Near Chikmagalur,Karnataka 


Thanks, … A Commelinaceae member: /species/a—l/cl/commelinaceae

check in Murdania

familly Commelinaceae

Pl. check comparative images at /species/a—l/cl/commelinaceae/murdannia

Habit picture will be crucial at this occasion if it is the robust herb, and has the rosette leaves then possibly Murdannia loriformis or else Murdannia nudiflora. The latter is very common.

Thanks … Considereing the habitat I go with M.nudiflora,
