Similarity, but differences in leaves design, dear ….  Serrated margin of Sida spinosa leaves from very near to base and have a clear apex.  But in my plant serration starts far from base and have’nt a clear apex, please check the collage, first is mine and second is S.spinosa at efi.


Very minute difference …, that much variable accepted for with in species,

Check once more what you pointed out characters in your plant young to mature stages,
within your plant I have observed there is serrate from the middle and from base also,
let me after once more your diagnosis,


Yes, it is very minute differences, dear … I shall post more images next day,



Totally leaves have twins apexes, dear …, please find more images attached,
4 images.


One correction: leaves closed upwards in night.


I think Sida ovata Forssk. as per illustrations at Malvaceae of Southern Peninsular India: A Taxonomic Monograph V. V. Sivarajan, ‎A. K. Pradeep – 1996
Looks different from illustrations of S.spinosa.


The leaves of Sida ovata is not matching with my plant, dear …, please check the collage, first one is S. ovata at efi and other images are mine


There are lot of variations in the leaves in Sida species. Pl. check the Monograph link, I have sent you.


Ok, I will check, dear …, thank you very much for sharing the link,


It is very hard to reach the link that you provided. Hence I am agree the decision whatever you taking


It is a book link. You have to scroll a lot to find the correct illustrations.


Yes, listed many Sida sp., but free availability is limited to certain sections only,


But both the illustrations can be seen.
