Habitat: untended area in Joshimath town
Habit: herb, standing about 1 m


I hope Rumex nepalensis


I have a doubt. I found and collected 5 species in Imphal, including what is posted here.
However, I could not get the exact key to identify the species.
I had posted in this forum to help. expecting some one will post the key characters to identify the species.


I am sure you have consulted Flora of Manipur (if the family covered), Fl. Assam, Fl. India and other relevant floras.
If you think some are widely distributed species, then you may try some international floras/keys (links are given below).
You may also like to post the pictures in the group so that members will have a chance to look at the plants and try to help you… Its just a suggestion.
Pl check these links for keys to Rumex:
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=128864
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=128864

http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/NSWfl.pl?page=nswfl&lvl=gn&name=Rumex


Sure, Let me post the pictures. Unfortunately I does not have Flora of Manipur or Flora of Assam. I’m trying to get them.

May be you can visit FRLHT Herbarium (perhaps the nearest one to you), where you can refer the floras and collections from Manipur as well.


In the mean time you may refer to keys of Flora of China and Flora of Pakistan at www.efloras.org They cover most of our Rumex species.

This dock leaf is quite common here with its broad leaves and tints of reds on its stalks. I guess its a Rumex species but am not sure of its correct ID. Could it be Rumex nepalensis?
Rumex nepalensis?

The photograph uploade is Rumex dentatus


Thank you … Aren’t the leaves of R. dentatus more elongated?


There is differences in R. nepalensis and R. dentatus in structure of leaves, ochrea and perianth since the photograph has only leaves which are condensed at the base and has red patches on the leaves is a peculiarity of R. dentatus. Any way if the photograph of the plant with perianth is possible which can give clear picture for the identification. Hope you can understand. Presently the  characteristic features of the photograph resemble to R. dentatus


Thank you very much for your detailed explanation. I happened to come across flowering plants on my walk in town and I brought a sample to photograph and share with you. I am hoping this addition helps us in confirming the ID.

Flora of Uttarakhand- Herb21 for Id- JM:
Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).

Species of Rumex are mostly identified on the basis of fruiting perianth, this plant being in flower, but looking at the plant size and leaves, it may be Rumex patientia var. orientalis


Common sorrel or garden sorrel (Rumex acetosa)
a very tasty vegetable. Germanname  Wiesen-Sauerampfer


I think the leaves of R. acetosa are distinctly hastate to sagittate at base. Not in the above photographs. http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=107739&flora_id=800 http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=50768&flora_id=2


I thought this to be Rumex nepalensis.


Hard to say with these photographs. The habit of Rumex patientia is supposed to be more robust as per the information and photographs provided by eFlora.org. Please have a look on the photograph available on this link. ( http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=107743&flora_id=800).
Further, R. patientia var. orientalis Danser is treated under the synonymy of R. patientia L. var. patientia by Tropicos, not yet reported from India. A close scrutiny of the flower and fruits will help.
Waiting for further comments.


I think close to images at Rumex nepalensis Spreng.
