Wonderful documentation as usual ! thanks for sharing …
Really nice … species id seems correct.
let me add to the this collection with T. rotundifolia. Please add this to your collection for comparative display.
Thank you very very much …
Is this rotundifolia found commonly in SGNP ?
From the last pic, it looks like it grows in open, and appears to remain as a small herb.

In Flora of India Vol-3 PORTULACACEAE-
IXONANTHACEAE, edited by B.D. Sharma, M. Sanjappa & N.P. Balarkishnan (1993) account of Tliaceae is written by P. Daniel & M. Chandrabose.
In this document (Daniel & Chandrabose, 1993) published by BSI, following species of Triumfetta are described from India-
Species with description & pictures in Flowers of India as on 1.4.14:
Dr. Almeida in his ‘Flora of Maharashtra’, Vol 1 lists 5 species of Triumfetta :
1. T. pilosa
2. T. rhomboidea
3. T. pentandra
4. T. rotundifolia
5. T. annua
Am familiar with the first three.
While T.pentandra is an annual undershrub, T.rhomboidea & T.pilosa are perennial herbs.
Besides other features, Dr. Almeida differntiates the 3 mainly on the morphology of their fruit.
– T.pilosa has fruit with hispid bristles.
– T.rhomboidea has globose fruit with sharp bristles.
– T.pentandra has ovoid fruit with sharp bristles ciliate down one side.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Triumfetta
Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible.
Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.
If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.
Any comments/ corrections are welcome.
I have added list of Triumfetta spp. in India based on Flora of India Vol-3.
Thanks a lot, … I could not find any substantive details of T. obliqua Roth on net, leave alone Indian sources. Any reasons ?
Flora of India has mentioned Triumfetta cana Blume as synomym of T. obliqua Roth.
The name T. obliqua was published by Roth in 1821 while T.cana was published by Blume in 1825. If both are same species, following nomenclatural rules earlier name should be the correct name; accordingly it was taken as T. obliqua by Flora of India. However, Plant List and other sources do not consider (probably) these two names belonging to same species, thus consider T.cana as an accepted name but T.obliqua as unresolved name. With the distribution of T.cana as mentioned in Herbarium Catalogue Kew and distribution of T. obliqua in Flora of India I feel that both the names belong to same species, but till it is resolved we may follow Flora of India
Thanks a lot, …, for the clarification.
Flora of China (with Triumfetta tomentosa Bojer & Triumfetta tomentosa var. calvescens Franch. as syn.), shows distribution of Triumfetta cana Blume in India as does Annotated Checklist of the Flowering Plants of Nepal & Tropicos | Name – Triumfetta cana Blume (Syn. Triumfetta tomentosa Bojer & Triumfetta tomentosa var. calvescens Franch. ).
Pdf of Flora of china is available at this link, published in 2007.
The Plant List ver 1.1 shows Triumfetta tomentosa var. calvescens Franch. is a synonym of Triumfetta cana Blume
In view, I think Triumfetta cana Blume is the current accepted name of Triumfetta tomentosa Bojer.
Mystery about T. obliqua still remains & you may be correct in this regard.
I request other expert also to through some light in this matter.
Further updated Triumfetta page.
Kindly add the Triumfetta tungarensis Billore which was described from Tungar hill of Thane, Maharashtra which is synonym of Triumfetta rhomoidea (Paper published by M. R. Almeida and )
Thanks, …, But all the following sites suggest Triumfetta tungarensis Billore to be a syn. of Triumfetta rhomboidea Jacq.:
Sorry, you have already suggested that.

If you find any incorrect 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.
