Small wild plant with yellow flowers seen at MNP, Mumbai on 14/11/2011.

Malvastrum or Sida?


This may be Sida cordata or Sida acuta


Sida acuta seems to be a better choice.

Experts kindly confirm id.


I think it is Sida acuta, too.


Sida acuta seems correct as suggested by some. Leaves are acute.

Dear friends, please validate the ID; I believe it to be Sida acuta.
… the photos at bottom belong to Marble Rocks, a place about a km away from where I sighted the posted plant. The place is known as Marble Rocks, the river is Narmada. Post monsoon the rocks (marble) and the water become cleaner; a boat ride during moonlit night is heavenly.

very beautiful place, I agree with the id too.. thanks … for this post too…

Sida or similar genera ? 


Looking at the leaf pattern it looks like Sida acuta.


Is it the same plant?


You can also check with similar confusing species of Malvastrum coromandliana. Pl. Check the spellings.


Checked earlier but leaves do not look like matching as it is bit elongated than the Malvastrum coromandelianum

Attaching an image of a Grey Pansy butterfly visiting flowers of Sida species.

Check with Sida spinosa


I did, earlier. The leaves are longer (~7-8 cm) than spinosa (~4 cm), it seems. Here are some more pictures from another side of the forest.
3 images.


I guess this is Sida acuta Burm.f.   Sida acuta !


I also think it is closer to images at Sida acuta Burm.f. rather than those at Sida spinosa L.
