Sharing some pictures of Hydrocotyle himalaica shot today (10.8.16) at Mudkhu Nepal at 5000 ft.

Very nice & complete set..

I guess this is Hydrocotyle javanica Thunb., …

I think you may be right. FoPI says ‘Upper umbels pedunculate fascicled’ in its keys.

While in H.himalaica it is ‘ Umbels many-flowered, densely capitate in flower; peduncle 3–8 cm, usually as long as or longer than petioles; pedicels 1–2 mm in flower, 4–7 mm in fruit.’ as per Flora of China.


Is it Hydrocotyle or Centella?:
Could you help me ID our creeping herb please.
Loc: west slope of Mt Slamet
2,200 m alt.

It could be Hydrocotyle javanica

Yes … did a great job this is indeed Hydrocotyle javanica in its native land.

Thank you very much. Yes it is in Central Java.


This small herb with minute flowers was shot by me around Dalhousie first, later at many places..
These shots are from Dalhousie, please suggest if I am right in saying this Hydrocotyle javanica ..

I hope H. himalaica (Hydrocotyle javanica Thunberg var. podantha C. B. Clarke)

I think this is Hydrocotyle javanica Thunb. as per discussions in another thread: Hydrocotyle himalaica
