Decumbent or ascending perennial herb often reaching 1 m when getting support in wet situations; leaves opposite, lower petiolate, upper sessile, ovate, 2-6 cm long, base rounded or cordate, margin slightly undulate; flowers white 8-12 mm across, in few-flowered dichasial cymes, on slender pedicels; sepals oblong-lanceolate, 4-5 mm long in flower, up to 7 mm in fruit, glandular-pubescent outside, margin scarious; petals up to one and half times as long as calyx, deeply bilobed; capsule ovoid, 7-9 mm long.

Myosoton aquaticum (L.) Moench (=Stellaria aquatica (L.) Scop. can be easily overlooked among the population of Stellaria media (L.) Villars, as both have minute white flowers with 5 deeply bipartite petals. To distinguish them one needs a hand lens to count styles; 3 in S. media and 5 in M. aquaticum. Additionally, capsules are 6-valved with entire apices in S. media but M.aquaticum has 5 valves in capsule with lobes bifid at apices. Capsules are broader and larger in M. aquaticum but with smaller seeds.

Yes Sir, Myosotos aquaticum I have also found these flowers at Gulmarg in  June this year. One photo is attached herewith.


you copied my wrong spellings. actually it is my fault

It should be Myosoton aquaticum (syn: Stellaria aquatica)

Myosoton aquaticum

…, Luckily I could count 5 styles, otherwise it is really impossible to identify Stellaria (this was formerly S. aquatica) species from such flowers. It is time we develop habit of also taking photographs of leaves and twigs. They are very essential in most genera.

stellaria again… So this last one would be… stellaria graminea.. ??


Please always upload with leaves to enable identification up to species level. The first is perhaps Stellaria media, second possibly Cerastium


Thanks …, Here’s a photo of the leaves..


This is Cerastium fontanum (syn: C. vulgatum)


Thank you …, You’re a walking encyclopedia… :))
So this last one would be… stellaria graminea..??


Not able to count number of styles but from leaves it looks like Myosoton aquaticum (syn: Stellaria aquatica) which differs from Stellaria in having 5 styles.
Stellaria graminea has much narrower almost grass-like leaves


I think the first image is of Stellaria media as per keys & images herein.

This is one more species of Cerastium with much deeply cleft petals, recorded from the same place today (2.3.14)..

Please help to identify..


I think you missed it …

Deeply cleft petals (almost divided into two) is Stellaria and of course 5 distinct stigmas point to Stellaria aquatica now known as Myosoton aquaticum


Thanks a lot Sir for clarifying..

I hope this is Stellaria media (based on FoI pics).


efi page on Stellaria media   


In Stellaria media, the sepals are longer than petals; whereas in this case, petals are longer than sepals. Can probably be S. latifolia.


Myosoton aquaticum I hope


Thanks … for the ID… I went through the earlier posts on efi for Myosoton aquaticum

I could faintly count 5 styles in my pics 3 and 4.

Altitude: 2160 meters asl
GPS: 33.33 N and 76.23 E
Plant habit/habitat: Wild herb
Plant height: 1-2 feets

Petals are slightly confusing, but looks like Myosoton aquaticum. Please check whether petals are deeply lobed or not and number of styles. photograph of mature fruit should help.


And …, it is not a shrub, rather soft herb.


I am really sorry and I apology for writing Shrub in Subject line for identification of a herb. Actually I was thinking of uploading a shrub but at last moment I uploaded the herb and missed to change shrub in subject. Sir the the petals seems to be deeply lobed and the number of styles is 10 in this flower.


styles can’t be 10. They have to be 3 or 5, see above the ovary not surrounding (stamens) it.

Looking now at petals it may be Cerastium.


Perhaps Myosoton aquaticum


I also think it matches with images at Myosoton aquaticum (L.) Moench


Myosoton aquaticum is another plant I have no doubt walked past in the Himalaya without paying any attention to. Stewart records it in N.Pakistan & Kashmir at 1000-2400m (extending this to 3000m in his personally annotated final copy of his ‘Annotated Catalogue of the Vascular Plants of Pakistan & Kashmir) with records from Tangmarg. Hooker named it Stellaria aquatica. Collet in ‘Flora Simlensis’ has it under Stellaria aquatica (as one would expect for a publication +/- a century old, he mostly followed Hooker’s ‘Flora of British India’ for nomenclature; he found it at Shimla & Narkunda, in wet places and along streams. It is a native of the UK, known as ‘Water Chickweed’.  In N.America, it has become something of an invasive weed. There are good illustrations at: illinoise Wild flowers  and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myosoton_aquaticum

You seem to be missing vital information. Photographs can be misleading, especially close ups unless you mention the size (leaves, flowers–length and dia), habitat, size of the plant and a few other things.


Can we have another close up. The styles are difficult to count in this flower.


I do realise the problem … the problem is that most of the time when I have taken these photos.. I am usually on the move in the field… working in the villages.. and often there is not much time I can spare for the flowers except quickly snap off a few photographs..
will try to locate this one and take the close up of the styles again


Could be Myosoton aquaticum but number of styles (5) needs to be verified.

Hooghly Today : Stellaria media (L.) Vill.? or Stellaria media var. media ?:

Both GRIN and The Plant List list Stellaria media (L.) Vill.
The Plant List also lists Stellaria media var. media, one of its synonym is Stellaria monogyna D. Don.
But, neither GRIN nor The Plant List describes a plant (do they?).
FoC has two varieties of Stellaria media (L.) Vill.
In addition to above FoC also describes Stellaria neglecta Weihe.
This species, a wild small decumbent herb, more or less a ft high differs in all of the above either in 1) flowering season, 2) number of styles, 3) number of stamens or in more than single feature.

What will be its current accepted name?


Stellaria media (L.) Vill. is based on Alsine media L., and S. monogyna is a synonym of of it

It would be sufficient to list it as such unless we are also listing a variant also say for Stellaria media var. micrantha (Hayata) T. S. Liu & S. S. Yingvar. Now we would have two taxa, one the original typical plant which would get automatically named as Stellaria media (L.) Vill. var media (an autonym, as it is automatically created so no author name).
In a way when we are listing simply Stellaria media, it means we are referring Stellaria media var. media.
Now one of the blunders of The Plant List. It lists Stellaria media subsp. cupaniana (Jord. & Fourr.) Nyman; logically whenever such a subspecies name is created the original type should become Stellaria media subsp. media, and if the two varieties are to be retained they would have names as Stellaria media (L.) Vill. subsp. media var. media and Stellaria media (L.) Vill. subsp. media var. micrantha (Hayata) T. S. Liu & S. S. Yingvar.

But then perhaps no one associated with The Plant List knows these basics of Botanical nomenclature.


Now, i think i can understand a bit how naming convention goes into plant taxonomy. I had no clear idea earlier.

Thank you very very much for explaining.


As styles appear to be five, it may be Stellaria aquatica as per keys & images herein.


Yes …, It is S. aquatica.

Myosoton aquaticum, now known as Stellaria aquatica (Caryophyllaceae) to me. % styles differentiate it from S. media.

Our S. media page need re-examination as some of the pics are of this (S.aquatica) species.

… most probably … Stellaria media (syn. Alsine media)


It does look like a Stellaria species. However, a bit too hairy for
Stellaria media.
I would look for a Cerastium species. Since it is from J & K,
… might be able to make a better guess.


You are worried about hairyness, plus I also am finding half or less divided petals (though one petals seems to be divided nearly to the base) negating Stellaria. I find at least one fruit suggesting apical teeth of Cerastium. …, do you have some other photographs for better decision.


attaching one more photo…  Attachments (1)


I think Stellaria media only


Let me say here why I think this is not Stellaria media.
1. In Stellaria media, stems are hairless, with a single line of
hairs. In … pics, the stem is overall hairy.
2. In Stellaria media, leaves are also hairless. In … pics,
leaves are quite hairy.
The genus Stellaria has many more confusingly similar species. I think we need to explore more.


Stellaria lanata is one candidate I am looking at – unfortunately
cannot find any pic on the web.


I am learning a lot from your keen observations.
I found one more photo but it is from totally different place…
It is not from Dudh Pathari,,,, It is photographed at ‘Aru’ ‘अडू’, Leader Vally लिडर व्‍हॅली, Jammu & Kashmir.

Stellaria media (L.) Vill. ??/?

Stellaria latifolia (Benth. ex Royle) Edgew. & Hook. fil.  as you have mentioned in SK799 14 OCT-2017:ID ?


To me appears more closer to Stellaria aquatica (L.) Scop. rather that at Stellaria himalayensis Majumdar as per images herein.

Stellaria media to me.

flowers chickweed but the s. media i know to have hairy edged leaves. here they are not


Stellaria media seems correct ID.

I will suggest comparing with Mysoton aquaticum

thanks … i am sure … will do the needful

Thanks … Some Chickweed species but not sure about which one. I think my pic is not showing centre part very clearly. Hence can’t see the androecium properly.

I agree with …, for id as Stellaria aquatica

need habitat pictures and some idea of the sizes: flowers across, largest leaves

7 very high resolution images.

Location: Chandragiri

Altitude: 1800m.
Habitat : Wild 

Stellaria neglecta Weihe ??


Isn’t it Stellaria aquatica?


I could not decide !


Yes, it appears close to images at Stellaria aquatica as suggested by …

Could not check the key between the two as eflora links not working (if we have keys there).

Looks ok to me !


.


Stellaria himalayensis: 3+3+ 2 high res. images.

Habit: Small herbaceous plant. 

Weak stem. 
Petals 10.

Location: Kulgam, J&K.


Yes from me.


For me too yes


Images at Stellaria himalayensis Majumdar are creating a doubt in my mind.

Do you have an image of the complete plant in a single frame and a habitat image ?


3 images.


I feel it may be some other species.

IBP says “sepals 4, lanceolate, base truncate, margins narrow scarious, apex acute to acuminate, persistent, about 5-7 mm long, petals 4, oblong, white, about twice as long as sepals,….”


Also see GBIF specimens.


In this sp. Petals are 5..divided in two resembles like 10 petals.


do you have close-up of flower, I want to exclude the possibility of Mysoton aquaticum (5 styles vs 2 in S. himalayensis


Yes, …, style is another issue.


Closeup photographs

2 images.


It resembles with Mysoton aquaticum.


Yes Myosoton aquaticum
