A revision of Indian Viscaceae N.P. Balakrishnan V.N. Sanjai Rheedea 16(2):73-109 · January 2006 (Abstract- The family Viscaceae in India with 19 species under Arceuthobium M. Bieb., Ginalloa Korth., Korthalsella Van Tiegh. and Viscum L. is taxonomically revised based on herbarium studies, explorationsand collections from different parts of India. Viscum is represented by 15 species. Among them, 4 species, including the recently described V. malurianum Sanjai & N.P. Balakr. and V. subracemosum Sanjai & N.P. Balakr., are endemic to India. Viscum articulatum var. thelocarpum and var. liquidambaricolum are merged with V. articulatum. Viscum album var. meridianum is sunk under V. album proper. V. orbiculatum and V. verruculosum are treated as synonyms of V. heyneanum. Viscum acaciae Danser is a new record for India. Viscum mysorense is considered as a link between the leafy and leafless species. Korthalsella is represented by a single species, K. japonica (Thunb.) Engler, as Korthalsella japonica var. coralloides is merged with K. japonica proper. Ginalloa andamanica Kurz is endemic to South Andamans. Systematic position, factors affecting distribution, morphology, hyperparasitism and cryptic mimicry of/in Viscaceae are discussed)

I have made few changes in the page of Santalaceae.
Please see whether these are acceptable or not.


Thanks, … It is not only very much acceptable, but most welcome.


Species, genera & family pages of‎‎‎Santalaceae‎‎‎ are now with comparative images. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details. Genus pages generally give details of most of the species found in India.

May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified/ wrongly identified images, it will be really nice.
