This one was shot from agriculture field borders in Panipat, I hope this one is Acmella ciliata (Kunth) Cassini…. as this was earlier uploaded and got identified.. I hope to get validation/correction..


thanks … for well-illustrated upload.


.

This herb was growing near a water channel in agricultural fields in Panipat, shot in November 2010. I believe this is Spilanthes, wish to know which species this is, please.


– Yes .. , most species now placed under Acmella This I think is Acmella ciliata

You may check this important paper.
eJournal


.


Acmella ciliata from Panipat:  This one is Acmella ciliata (Kunth) Cassini in F. Cuvier, Dict. Sci. Nat. 24: 331. 1822; Spilanthes ciliata Kunth.
Was photogrpahed in August 2011 from a village border near Panipat.


Nice Shots Dear. I think these are from Jatal Bhador Forest area


Yes, you are right..


Nice pictures. We have this in Botany Department Garden, Delhi University.


 

Spilanthes oleracea L. is a common herb in Tarai area in moist localities. Species of Spilanthes (=Acmella) are known as Desi Akarkara, an important ingredient in Ayurvedic preparation.

Photographed at Pantnagar.


Not S. oleracea. It is Acmella ciliata

please validate this to be Acmella uliginosa; the plant is growing by road-side – scrub vegetation on waste ground. In this case, the leaves – especially basal – are larger, broader compared to those in my earlier post … perhaps owing to difference in habitat.
at Yeoor Hills, Thane on 16 DEC 09

Seems very likely…thanks …


A better view of leaf base should help, also close up of head.


The cropped pictures attached; hopefully it helps.


I am inclined to take it as A. ciliata

1. Leaves are broader and appear ovate, not gradually narrowed at base.
2. Shape of heads is typical of A. ciliata
3. Close up of head though not very clear suggests pentamerous disc florets.

 

Attached images may be Acmella ciliata (Humboldt, Bonpland & Kunth) Cassini. Please validate the ID.
Date :.2013
Location: Kamrup district
Family : Asteraceae
Genus & species : Acmella ciliata (Humboldt, Bonpland & Kunth) Cassini
Habitat: Grows wild on road side, near drain etc
Habit : Herb
Inflorescence : Radiate head, peduncle long

Yes … A. ciliata mainly differs from A. uliginosa is broader head, pentamerous flowers and rounded to cordate leaf base.


Thanks … for the differences. To expand…….
The disc florets are 4-merous in A.uliginosa
5-merous in A.ciliata

I had seen this herb at Mizoram and also at Shillong.
Looks like some Acmella sp.

Acmella ciliata I hope.

Appears more closer to images at Acmella ciliata (Kunth) Cass. rather than those of Acmella paniculata (Wall. ex DC.) R.K.Jansen


Please compare with Acmella ciliata in eFI.


Nepali Names : लाटो घाँस Laato Ghaansमारती Maaratee


Appears more closer to images at Acmella ciliata (Kunth) Cass. rather than those of Acmella paniculata (Wall. ex DC.) R.K.Jansen


Yes it is A. paniculata…. a medicinal edible plant. It is popularly known as Small Marhatti (Sano marhatti) too in Nepali. The side view of flower could have made easier to identify.


Thank you …! I am still a learner and lot more learn yet.


Actually your interest and contribution in plants is an example for the people working and studying plants….

Learning is never ending process ….hope to see further contributions..


Thank you … for the compliments.

Yes, indeed learning process is a never ending process!


No, it is not Acmella paniculata (does not have ray florets) as per details and images herein.
I had earlier identified it as Acmella ciliata (Introduced) as per details and images herein.
However, I do not find its mention in the Checklist of Nepal.
2nd best choice will be Acmella uliginosa (syn: Spilanthes iabadicensis A. H. Moore as per Catalogue of Life).

Yes …! Need to check it, with details..


Yes It is not A paniculata as per its characters.

Other options could be A. calva, A. ciliata


Did not find listing of A. ciliata in Nepal unless it is a new to Nepal.
Spilanthes


I think Acmella ciliata (Kunth) Cass. only.


Confirm by Prof. Chen: Acmella paniculata !


But leaf base appears to be cordate and not cuneate.
