Isodon & Plectranthus : 1 post by 1 author.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Isodon & Plectranthus

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other databases/ books.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments are welcome.

Re: completed insertion of images of identified species of Plectranthus : 1 post by 1 author.
Some species were done by other members

.

Pl. go through Plectranthus page (Lamiaceae) with  images of species in efloraofindia (done by …).

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know.
If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), it will be really nice. Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
