Commelina for ID : Munnar : 260612 : AK-1: Picture taken on 21/10/08 in one of the Cardamom plantations at Munnar.
Commelina species id please.


I found one more picture. Not too good I guess. This was taken much before I joined eflora, pictures were taken very casually then. Hope it helps.


Without seeing spathe, couldn’t say anything about species….more probably Commelina indehiscens E. Barnes.

Requesting ID..

C clavata. I unable attach my pictures on any thread that I reply?

Thanks, … But I do not find any such problem.


when you do reply or reply all. a set of icons show up as seen in my screen shot included here. big A is formatting, paper clip is for attaching files like docx or pdf, cycle chain link is o add url links and mountain sign is to include photos.
hope this helps

new to me too😃

so how have you been uploading all these cases, …? and you are welcome

I did not have idea about mountain icon.


On EF site when I reply in a thread, there is no ‘attach’ option, so I have to create new thread by sending email. There too efloraofindia@gmail.com bounces by saying ‘address not found’. The mail gets through only on indiantreepix@googlegroups.com.


There is always an option to attach, as in any normal mail reply.

Yes …, there is an option in Gmail but not when I reply in the thread. Please look at 2screen shots.

Is it that you are making a reply from Google group site and not from Gmail?

…, that’s the only way I have known to see all the posts in a line and reply them. If there is a way to do this in gmail, I am ignorant. Please send me step by step screenshots to do so.

Thanks, … Yes, you can change your mail option to

All Email: send each message as it arrives’ option (around 50 messages per day)

This way you will be getting all the messages in your inbox and you can reply accordingly.

However, I checked there is an attachment option even when replying from google group site. I have copied it and pasting below:

Here you get an option to Attach a file as highlighted below in bold:


Can’t find this. Please see the screenshots.
