Kalatope idal120711:
Something tells me that this plant might be the same.. is my hunch correct or should I separate them for the record..
Location Kalatope
Altitude 2100 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild
Plant height 16-18 inches

Yes .. You have mixed two plants. The one with rounded head is Lecanthus wallichii.
Two species may occur in your area: L. wightii with only up to 10 cm long plants and head smaller than 4 mm; L. wallichii with plant up to 60 cm tall and head 1.5 cm to 4 cm.
The other plant with delicate branching inflorescence is Pilea umbrosa, I suppose


The one with the round head must be L. wallichii since the flower heads are about 1-1.5 cm approx….

Correctly identified. Beautiful pics. Nice to see this plant of shady moist area and stream banks.


I am a bit skeptical about the ID of this plant. Does not look like L. peduncularis !


Can’t these be female flowers as per

Herb from Solang valley Manali area

I hope Lecanthus peduncularis


Lecanthus peduncularis

I guess Lecanthus peduncularis (Royle) Wedd.


Lecanthus peduncularis very likely.

I also +1 for Lacanthus peduncularis and it is also common in Shimla Water Catchment Sanctuary.

Elatostema ?

After following keys in flora of Bhutan lead me to the following species:

7. Young shoots glabrous ……… Species 10 (10. E. dissectum Weddell- Warm broad-leaved forests, 1500- 1700 m. May- June), 11 (11. E. ficoides Weddell; E. marianruze Oarke- Warm broad-leaved forests, 1800-2100 m. August), 12 (12. E. treutleri Hook. f.- 1500 m. July) & 13 (13. E. nasutum Hook. f.- Warm broad-leaved forest, 1700-2100 m. August)
-Young shoots rusty-puberulous or pale pubescent …….. Species 14 (14. E. papillosum Weddell- Warm broad leaved forest, 1300 m. July), 15 (15. E. sikkimense Oarke- On wet rocks, 1000-2400 m. July- August) & 16 (16. E. stellatum Hook. f.- 1500 m. September)
I think it is not matching with neither of these as per Checklist of Nepal:
Elatostema dissectum Wedd. as per
Elatostema nasutum J. D. Hooker
Elatostema procridioides Wedd. (syn: E. treutleri Hook. f.)
E. ficoides Weddell, which you have already posted and as identified by Dr. Fu.
Elatostema papillosum Weddell

ID for this Elatostema sp. please !

I tried to check species in GBIF as per keys in Flora of Bhutan at Elatostema and also species which are listed in Checklist of Nepal, but could not find a match as per details below:
https://www.gbif.org/species/4099704 (Elatostema grandidentatum W.T.Wang)
https://www.gbif.org/species/4099637 (Elatostema subincisum Wedd.)
https://www.gbif.org/species/7300859 (Elatostema parvum Blume ex Miq.)
https://www.gbif.org/species/5669749 (Procris crenata C.B.Rob.)
Is this some other related genus?

Is it Lecanthus peduncularis ?


It could be. I had suggested for the possibility of Lecanthus petelotii  or its subsp.,
however not listed in Nepal !
