tiny herb ID from Hooghly 29/10/12 sk3:

Found this yet another herb inside the same uncultivated paddy field.
Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : less than 10 cm high
Date : 26/10/12, 10.30 a.m.

Place : Hooghly


According to the book, “Plant Groups”, Limnophila gratioloides R. Br. is weed of rice fields and damp places. Found this info on L. gratioloides r. Br. –

 


Yes this looks like Limnophila. It has peculiar smell of Saunf on the leaves. Not sure of the species.


This is Limnophila indica. Please check my earlier post on Eflora

[EfloraIndia_221212PD02_Limnophila indica_Flora of Odisha


Found two posts of L. indica at – efi thread 1andefi thread 2. But neither post mentions its flower size.

WhileFoIand FoCstate flowers are white or pale purple, 1-1.4 cm (i hope they mentioned the diameter/across), my flower is significantly smaller.

If it is L. indica (L.) Druce (syn. L. gratioloides R. Br.) we should stop copying blindly FoC or similar sites.


… in Limnophilla aromatica, L. repens, L.conata and L. rugosa, the leaves are undivided throughout the stem where as in L. aquatica, L.indica, L.sessiflora and L.heterophylla, leaves of lower/submerged parts of the stem are pectinate to multifid..

Similarly in L. aquatica and L. indica, flowers are pedicelled and in L.sessiflora and L. heterophylla flowers are sessile.


This is the flowers of 8 species of Limnophila i have collected from different water bodies of Odisha and preserved in herbarium,. I will share them later in the group.
Species                   Flowers
L. aquatica——Bluish or purple, 1-1.2 cm, short to long pedicelled, in erect terminal receme
L. aromatica—-Flowers purple, 9-15 mm long, in axillary or terminal many flowered receme, pedicels 7.5-10 mm long
L. connata—–Flowers rose purple, 1.2-1.5cm long, sessile in the axils of floral leaves/bracts
L. heterophylla—- Flowers purplish, sessile-subsessile, 1-1.2 cm long, solitary axillary
L.indica—–Flowers white or pale purple, 8-12 mm long, pedicelled, 8-8 mm long, axillary
L.repens—-Flowers purple, 7.5-12 mm long, , shortly pedicelled, solitary axillary
L.rugosa—-Flowers blue purple with yellow mouth in dens axillary heas, sessile or shortly pedicelled

L. sessiflora—-Flowers light purple, sessile, 1-1.2 cm long, solitary axillary


Your keys are useful for differentiating the Limnophila plants.


Your keys are very interesting.
But as usual I have one objection.
This colour purple is perceived by different people in different sense. now rose purple, pale purple, blue purple can be due to sunlight and other weather conditions too. Infact to me all these are blue or purple.
Please remove the colors and make the keys again.
There are major differences in leaves also you may incorporate that part too.
But for sure your contribution is very important for us.
Best wishes for more of such wonderful work.


I dont know… hence the question
Please tell me … do taxonomy experts deny colors in flowers?
if yes… please give me some citations that I can access easily or better yet a pdf or two … for my education and the others if they so desire..
this is a sincere request, not an affront…
so please tell me/us


Some of very basic examples are Catharanthus roseus, what ever colour may be all are same species.
Eulophia spectabilis: yellow, white, red, magenta: all are same species.
Colour can be taken into account if it is found in distinct zones. For example if White Eulophia spectabilis is found in western ghats but red is found in Himalayas then taxonomically you can say that they are two species or atleast varieties of same species. But both colours are found at all places, hence all are same species.
In the present context my point was how to differentiate between light blue, pale purple, dark purple, pinkish purple, greenish purple. Such things are not consistent. A plant growing in sunlight in some species may be darker but in some species they become paler. So COLOURS DONT FORM THE BASIS OF SPECIES DEMARCATION, but they may play important role in some particular species.


I agree, … Another case in point is colors of Mushrooms… colors are only a guide but they can achieve very many different hues … So are the water lilies that we find around here… hues ad infinatum…
Hydrangea flowers change colors on pH or aluminum/mag addition to soil
BUT IN MEDICINE.. Addisons disease is darkening of the skin to black, Acanthosis nigricans is Black…  etc etc etc
very specific colors…
So take home message…
no hard and fast rules… at least about colors…


Thanks to All for very elaborate discussion on flowers. I apologize for a miss, Satish Sir’s post of Limnophila indica does mention flower size as “less than a cm”.
However, i have vague idea on flower size, not this species, any species when size of a flower is mentioned.
When we say
1) flowers are 1 to 2 cm
Is it the diameter of a fully open flower? Even then, if it is a regular odd numbered petaled flower and the petals are not overlapping type it is very likely that if you place one end of your scale on the tip of a petal the opposite end passes through the blank space between 3rd and 4th petal. So, i assume i will have to draw a circle equal to the circumference of that particular flower and then decide its diameter.
2) corolla 1-2 cm
I assume it is the length of a corolla tube upto the tip of any member petal.

If i am wrong in the above understanding please let me know.


Both actually refers to the length of the flower/ corola and not the diameter and flower length includes the length of stalk (pedicel) too.

Scrophulariaceae Fortnight: Limnophila gratioloides from Pune:: -PKA5: : : Attachments (3). 3 posts by 2 authors.
This small herb was photographed at the edge of the “Pashan Lake, in Pune”.
Bot. name: Limnophila gratioloides
(Family: Scrophulariaceae).
(Herb was hardly 6 to 8 inch high, leaves whorled)
Local name: Turti


Excellent photographs of a tiny plant.

Corolla bilabiate

…Capsule opening by valves.

…Perfect stamens more than 2 (4 in this)

…Calyx not winged or keeled.

…Corolla throat and lip not with palate; anther cells distinct
…(Corolla throat and lip with palate; anther cells confluent at apex in Lindenbergia and ….Mimulus)

… Filaments appendaged; seeds rugose

… Anther cells stipitate; capsule 4 valved :::: Limnophila


Limnophila indica is the accepted name as per the plant List and L. gratioloides is a synonym.

I had posted similar plant from Pune which was also IDed as L. indica.

I was checking the key for Limnophila.

Limnophila aquatica and Limnophila indica are very close species.

Stems 1-2; corolla 1-2 cm long or more … … … … L.aquatica

Stems 3-8; corolla 0.5-1 cm long … … … … … … ..L.indica

Further in the description of aerial leaves: those of L.aquatica are opposite or 3-4 verticillate. which is the finding here.

Can it be L.aquatica then??

Size wise this as well as my plant is more likely to be L.indica though.


I guess L. heterophylla


This should be Limnophila indica (L.) Druce due to pedicled flowers as per details herein.



Kindly confirm the ID??
Bot. Name: Limnophila heterophylla ??
Family: Scrophulariaceae
Location: Pashan lake, pune
Date: 04-01-10


Leaves are parallel nerved, whorled and pinnatifid. Pedicels are longer than calyx and corolla seems about 1-2 cm long. This would be L. aquatica. For L. heterophylla the lower leaves have to be linear and flowers have to be stalkless.


This should be Limnophila indica (L.) Druce due to pedicled flowers as per details herein.

Limnophila indica (L.) Druce also placed in Gratiolaceae Plantaginaceae
at Goa on 29 DEC 11

Limnophila indica
Yes I can clearly observe the linear elliptic -linear oblong leaves as per description in BSI flora.

As against the leaves of a closely related sp. L aquatica are often verticillate linear to lanceolate.

Gujarati names of Limnophila indica : 6 posts by 3 authors.

Please help validate the Gujarati names tarati and purti for Limnophila indica.

Here are two references:

… in Facebook group, helped me with a cropped picture of some publication of Gujarat Forest Department  (attached) … which shows તરેટી and પૂર્તી
These words do not show up any results in Google search.
The name in Marathi is तुरटी turati which is also a name for alum … though I am not sure how the name connects to Limnophila, unless the colony of Limnophila plants keeps the waters clean where they reside !!
Attachments (1)

As far as i know and my knowledge of Gujarati permits, the Forestry Deptt’s nomenclature is correct.

તરેટી and પૂર્તી  may not figure in Google Search as equivalents of Limnophila indica. but they are correct.

Thanks very very much … for the validation.


My pleasure. I plan to data mine Molesworth and get classical Marathi equivalents of botanical flora of Maharashtra and prepare an inventory of the same. However this will take time.

Oh !!! that will be wonderful to happen. My best wishes for this and such ventures.

reminds me of some aquarium plants but then its barking up at the wrong tree,? this is terrestrial obviously. i am stumped.

Limnophila sessiliflora ?


yes could be, very well be but the sender needs to give more information: FIVE DAYS AGO. i dislike it when they do not respond. …both very senior members of this group have asked directly  and i did indirectly, more than 48 hours ago but there is no response from the submitting entity. he does not even say where the picture was taken, whether it was taken by him or is this one of those social media photos? and if at all this is a real inquiry?  or is it idle curiosity that they found in their mailbox one day. maker of the photo unknown. we have had some cases here before …of idle curiosity

Thanks, …, for the genus id.

It appears more closer to Limnophila heterophylla than Limnophila sessiliflora, as per images and details herein.

Is it Lindernia ciliata or something else?

Limnophila heterophylla

Oh Thanks. I thought otherwise so couldn’t match with any Lindernia.

The species name is apt considering different leaf patterns


This should be Limnophila indica (L.) Druce due to pedicled flowers as per details herein.

Have you ever tried smelling the leaves of this??? If not then dont miss a chance….trust me


It is not only Limnophila heterophylla, but so many species of Scrophs are with high aroma..
there are Illysanthes, Lindernia, Limnophila etc. in the aroma group…

Yes Limnophila indica


Feedback from another thread:

I had posted this aquatic herb on the forum earlier. It was IDed as Limnophila indica.

Can it be Limnophila aquatica or is it Limnophila indica?

The leaves are in favour of L. aquatica but size of the flower is small and goes in favour of L. indica.


The size of flowers is not a problem, there isn’t much difference –


May I know which Limnophila aquatica we are talking about, please?

This should be Limnophila indica (L.) Druce only as per images and details herein.
