Hooghly Today : Hygrophila ???:

Found this erect herb beside a rural drainage.
Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : erect, about 1 ft. high and smaller, stem hard (woody); not aromatic
Date : 08/02/2013

Place : Hooghly


This species seems to be Hygrophila ringens of FoI, the description of which can be found in FoC.
This is very interesting –

According to the Flora of British India Hygrophila obovata Nees = H. dimidiata Nees = H. salicifolia var. dimidiata. —–> The problem with this id is that F. B. I. mentions its distribution in Java and Borneo!

Nice picture … Not seen, probably distributed in your area and further south. Thanks for sharing!!


Thanks … for the appreciation.

I think these are found along the west coast, typically in marsh / swamps near mangroves. I checked now – it is also recorded from Rajasthan – thus may have affinity to swamps with salt content.

Acanthaceae ?


Any possibility of Hygrophila species from Acanthaceae!!


Thanks … Hygrophila schulli has thorn ? But no thorn I have seen this plant stem. See a close on plz.


Close-ups of bracteoles, calyx and details of leaf surface are needed to id any Hygrophila.

These attached pictures (Ramana-jan_2014©_Sourav Mahmud (11)_resize.jpg and Ramana-jan_2014©_Sourav Mahmud (12)_resize.jpg) suggest that the species can be Hygrophila ringens (L.) R. Br. ex Steud.
