Oops then the one in Kerala and here in the arid zone shows some variations.

This one was not that viscid, especially the pedicel.


The flowers are beautiful but I loved the composition of the first picture with blurred background.

Earlier this month I had uploaded Psuedarthria viscida (efi thread). This one was growing next to the same climber, all the characters seem to match except for the white flowers.


Good observation of the infra-specific variation!

The Tamil name நீர்மல்லி nirmalli have got listed at ENVIS-FRLHT for:

Please help in validating …

  1. whether these two plants have something common in them – perhaps same medicinal property.
  2. the word nir means water; whether Pseudarthria viscida has relation to water.

Transliteration in English for நீர்மல்லி is Neermalli (Neer = water; malli: Jasmine) and not nirmalli.

Thanks … But what could be any relation of water & jasmine to Pseudarthria viscida is quite intriguing !


The commonly used Tamil name for Hygrophila auriculata is “Neer mulli” நீர் முள்ளி (neer = water; mulli = spiny). The name “Neer malli” may refer to the floriferous nature of the plant–comparable to but not related to Jasmine (“Malli”).
I don’t see any relevance of this name (Neer malli) to P. viscida. A quick check with the original reference (?) could help understand the context.


Thank you very much …
Perhaps ENVIS – FRLHT has a tab on original reference.

But this name nirmalli is stuck (just as the name viscida) to Pseudarthria viscida all-across internet !!

Both: nirmulli (water-thorn) and nirmalli (water-jasmine) belong to Hygrophila auriculata, for sure.
Must have got copy-pasted to data of P. viscida somewhere, sometime accidentally.

It is found even in the book – CRC World Dictionary of Medicinal and Poisonous Plants by Umberto Quattrocchi.

I think it is a case of copy-pasted error.


Just to add above discussion, here in north Gujarat (Vireshwar, in Sabarkantha dist) forests, We have one tree
Strychnos potatorum (other species S. nux-vomica -strychnine obtained from seeds; rather poisonous fruit/seed tree in western parts) is known as નિર્મળી,  નિર્માળી (Nirmali or Nirmaali) in Gujarati. The seeds are use for water purification (purity નિર્મળ- Nirmal). The same tree in central part of gujarat is known as તડતડિયો (Tadtadiyo) as while burining its dry branches, nodes generates small cracker like sound.

I am mentioning just because the name / pronunciation matches with the awareness that the plant in discussion is different.
