On careful searching I found important characters to differentiate Trichodesmas.
1. Stamens included; Corolla tube longer than lobes, lobes shortly acuminate, not recurved…. …….T.inaequale.
1. Stamens exserted; corolla tube as long as, or shorter than lobes, lobes acuminate, recurved … 2
 
2. Glandular spots on corolla lobes; calyx hastate or cordate …………………………………………………. T.indicum
2. Glandular spots absent on corolla lobes; calyx rounded ……………………………………………………..
T. zeylanicum;


 

Pl. go through Trichodesma (Boraginaceae) page with images of species (done by …) in efloraofindia.

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, it will be really nice.

Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
