Please validate the id of this herb, recorded from Panipat, quite common around field borders..
I think this is Malva parviflora ..


Mericarp may be needed for correct identification!


The keeled angles making me also think M. parviflora

I need id assistance for following Species with 3 images. is it Malvaceous taxon?
Date: 22.04.2015
Habit: herb on wet places
Locality: JNU New Campus Forest, New Delhi

Corolla: white


Please check for Althaea ludwigii


Looks like Malva verticillata..


efi page on Malva verticillata & no efi page on Althaea ludwigii


May be Malva microcarpa


efi page on Malva microcarpa 


This should be Malva neglecta, Syn Malva rotundifolia.


Appears closer to images at Malva parviflora L.
