25042013GS1 a Lamiaceae member for ID from Sonipat :  Attachments (3). 13 posts by 5 authors.

This Lamiaceae member was growing along borders of wheat fields in Sonipat. I initially thought it to be Ocimum americanum, having flowers smaller than O. sanctum, hardly 3-4 mm long, but now looking at calyx perhaps it is not. Kindly help in ID. … should know it.


Sir This Mystry is lying unided with me also. In previous discussions it was suggested that this is Anisomeles indica but i was not agree This is most common lamiaceae weed along wheat field borders. Hope to get final id


Yes … It can’t be Anisomeles, which has 15-18 mm long corolla, this one has flowers even smaller than Ocimum basilicum, barely 3-4 mm long.


This plant is very common in our area, still the case is same with me, I have also stored this in unidentified category, the closest match which I could reach is Ocimum polystachyon Linn. I am also attaching a few pics (5) of this plant recorded in march 2013, from my village fields…


Still the id of this plant is doubtful because the pics (2) which I am attaching with this message resemble more with illustration of O. polystachyon on Flora of China… the pics are really bad because they were recorded through a very low end camera..


I think your conclusion about Basilicum polystachyon (O. polystachyon) is more convincing. When I had photographed this plant I had no doubt about its being O. americanum, but when I saw the calyx in photograph (I did not doubt it while photographing, that is why I did not bother to take a close up of calyx) I was in doubt about its being Ocimum, but after checking your photographs and illustration at Flora of China, I am very much convinced about it being Basilicum polystachyon.


I think it is better choice with us for now to consider this as Basilicum polystachyon… but my doubts will be cleared only after I get some better comparative pics of the two plants posted above..definitely we can reach to conclusion then..hope to find time very soon..


it looks like some Salvia sp, may be Salvia plebeia


Thanks … I remember you had identified earlier also when it was uploaded from Panipat. We had uploaded it from Morni also.

Shows how we tend to forget things soon.


Thanks … for clearing the doubts…I am still unsure about the two of mine pics posted later in this thread…


to me, two pics posted later looks different.


Thanks … for sharing the opinion.. I will definitely track out that later plant again and post for further clarifications..


Salvia plebeia R.Br. (Lamiaceae). As compared to other Lamiaceae members it has less aroma.

Seems to be a Nepeta sp…I can go wrong !!


Nepeta species so far in efi 


Thank you very much … for resurfacing this query, and thank you too Nidhan ji for the possibility of Nepeta sp.

Actually, I missed to update my notes with earlier posting of this plant where Nayan ji had suggested possibility of Salvia plebeia.
Now I do feel my posted plant must be Salvia plebeia.

But we need to go through all posts of S. plebeia in our group’s database. Not all look alike.


Thanks, …

If you point out the odd ones, I can take them up again.


Yes …, this can be Salvia pleibia..

¿ Salvia plebeia ?


I too think this can be Salvia plebeia as suggested by …


Thank you Sir. This specie is collected from Ghatsila in Feb 2016.


.


This is Orthosiphon rubicundus. … had also recently posted photographs of this.


you may be correct about the ID … but, picture of Orthosiphon rubicundus is a large herb in my mind as seen at FOI
Let us wait for comments.


Have this on my property. Sending a few of my photographs. Photograph 1 was identified by Dr.Almeida & his student Santosh Yadav as possibly Orthosiphon rubicundus. Have taken the other photographs later.


… is it that the seemingly small herb seen in — P1370447.JPG … would grow to become as large as — Orthosiphon rubicundus 1.jpg ?


Affirmative … The size definitely matches.


… a close-up of the tiny flower(s) from your end will greatly help me get over any small doubts that are in my mind about our plants being same. The flowers are just about 2 mm across.
On my end, the concern is how would the posted plant be Orthosiphon rubicundus … as per my belief, O. rubicundus is a larger herbaceous shrub, with larger flowers … http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=Orthosiphonrubicundus&m=tags


Was able to locate a few more photographs but unfortunately this is the best I could manage.


Orthosiphon rubicundus 3.jpg is quite convincing me to believe our plants are same. Many many thanks …
The concern about the ID remains … Orthosiphon rubicundus per my belief have larger flowers with the red calyx.
Would like to wait for comments.


Forwarding again for Id assistance please as it is not a Orthosiphon species.


Any possibility of Salvia plebeia ? Leaves are not visible in these pics (?).


Many many thanks …, for pointing to the possibility of Salvia plebeia.
I will get back home and try to find if I got any picture of leaves in my archive OR may be a crop from them.


I am attaching a cropped version of one of the photos of this post. May not be clear, but I am sure this plant must be Salvia plebeia. Attachments (1)


Yes, this is Salvia plebeia..!!


Yes it is! I have seen plants here with very few leaves at base and copious inflorescences.
