¿ Glinus lotoides ?
Seems matching …
Yes, it should be Glinus lotoides, nice habitat pics too…
Perhaps you also could not find the open flowers like me..
Thank you very much … for validating the ID, and for appreciation.

The first picture, at right bottom has one flower slightly opened. All parts of this plant seems to have only one colour, only differing in shades !!!
I assume this plant is found in Nepal. Any local name(s) ?
POWO shows its distribution in Nepal but did not find it anywhere listed. Mollugo
OK, thanks …, Glinus lotoides is not listed in Nepal’s Annotated Checklist.

Thanks very much … for validating the name. Will compile this name soon in the Names database and do the necessary correction.
I hope you are doing well. I need a page with the new combination Glinus lotoides subsp. hirtus published by M.R. Almeida in Fl. Maharashtra 2: 342. Could you please help me to find out an image of this page. Thank you very much for your attention.
… has kindly forwarded the pages.
