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

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 email@example.com bounces by saying ‘address not found’. The mail gets through only on firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Can it be Commelina diffusa Burm.f. as per images herein as it looks different from images at Commelina clavata C.B.Clarke ?
May be … can guide us in the matter.
Doubtfully Commelina indehiscens!.
