Rorippa palustris (L.) Besser –

Rorippa palustris is easily differentiated from R. indica by its broader much shorter fruits, usually less than 1 cm long. The fruits of latter are 10-15 mm long and barely 1.5 mm broad.
Indian and Chinese specimens have often been confused with R. islandica (restricted o Europe…..according to GRIN and Fl. China) which differs in much smaller flowers with sepals and petals less than 1.5 mm long and fruit more than twice as long as pedicel.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Rorippa

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.

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
