Ixora lanceolaria Colebr.SN May 42 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)

Ixora lanceolaria Colebr (= I. leucantha B. Heyne ex G. Don.) , Rubiaceae from Tidiandmul area of Coorg, Karnataka, I wondered to see long styles of this flowers.

As per WCSP, it a syn. of Ixora malabarica (Dennst.) Mabb., but does not match with the images at Ixora malabarica (Dennst.) Mabb.

This plant looks like a Pavetta species. Normally in Ixora style is not exserted. 

From comparative images at Pavetta, I think it is close to images of Pavetta hispidula Wight & Arn.
Pl. confirm

I guess you are right … ! Pavetta hispidula
