This could be Physalis minima (Little gooseberry).
(Page 84 of “Common Indian Wild Flowers by Shri Issac Kehimkar).


this plant is discovered by Mr and Mrs. Almeida. its diagosintic feature is the leaf with dentate margin, deeply U-shaped indentation, with short pointed serration.
this was collected from SGNP, Borivali.

Thank you very much for validating the ID, …
The leaves, I find are strikingly beautiful.


the epithet joe-diasii is named for which personality ? any idea ? 


…, can u send me this plant or leave tissue. Please send me more information about this plant. 


, that sighting was long way back in 2008; after which I have never met this plant any where else. The earlier site, which was an untended place near a temple, has now a concrete floor. If I come across this plant, will keep you posted.

But the name is unresolved yet, I guess

I would like to believe the plant is P. joe-diasii !! 


A word of caution. All the name changes, combinations, new names etc. published  by these authors in Family Euphorbiaceae sensu lato have been found to be illegitimate or superfluous. I am making this statement on the basis of evidences available with me.

Physalis angulata from bank of Delhi Parrallel Branch canal near Panipat
growing wildly and abundantly 


To me appears close to images at Physalis joe-diasii as per details and images herein.

 

Taken at Maharashtra Park, Mumbai on 19/9/10.
Tiny plant, growing wild.
Fruits not seen.

Physalis minima of solanaceae family. The ripened fruit is edible.
Common English name from Wikipedia is “Pygmy Groundcherry” 


Physalis minima.  A common weed in Mysore. 


Please refer to earlier discussion on this genus. The plants referred to P. minima may belong to P. angulata or P. lagascae (or even P. pruinose). This one should be Physalis angulata. Kindly refer to the useful paper:
*The myth of “minima” and “maxima“, the species of Physalis in Indian Subcontinent* by V S Raju, C S Reddy and K G Rajarao, published in Acta Phytotaxonomica Sinica, 45 (2): 239–245(2007). it is also available online: http://www.plantsystematics.com/qikan/manage/wenzhang/aps06141.pdf

Time of collection: 01/10/2012
Location : Maligaon, 1 No. Gate. Guwahati 11
Habit : Herb
Habitat : Grows on the road side.


I hope Physalis angulata

http://file.lw23.com/f/f8/f8f/f8f0b0c8-d717-40a1-aeca-5fdaa7323b45.pdf


from the internet descriptions of these two I am a bit confused
what really is the diagnostic difference?
the berries of both look similar
and the covering balloon are both ribbed and angled
acuta seems a bit more acute angled than the minima
is that the difference?
I could not open the link pdf…claims something is missing
do you have a copy on your computer may be that would help.


Thank You Sir Ji. But I am a bit confused. When you identified my specimen as Physalis angulata, then I again moved to the collection site today and collected the attached images of specimen (Physalis angulata – 1 and Physalis angulata -2) where there is a difference in leaf morphology (onoes margin is dentate where othere is not). Both the specimen are collected from the same locality. And also I have dissected the flowers of both specimen and found little difference. On the other hand in “The Plant list” Physalis minima is a synonym of P. angulata. (P. angulata var. angulata). But in “Flora of China” the Physalis minima and p. angulata are described as different species. So, please put on light on this matter.


Some of the doubts can be cleared by persual of earlier discussions at efi site link:

This is yet another wild plant, recorded on 23/Sept/2012, at another place.


Physalis angulata


Yes Sir, it seems to be P. angulata L., as per http://www.jse.ac.cn/wenzhang/aps06141.pdf, though one or two points differ, eg. anther colour, erect-robust habitat (this plant is not erect robust). But, then unless one examines whole population from several places one cannot come into concrete conclusion.


A new set recorded an hour ago. Attachments (5)


Yes, Physalis angulata ..


Thank you Sir. Another one https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/BFM6hKkYncI/ScAj_BBBSVoJ is also Physalis angulata L., though anthers are not purple there.
