Triumfetta sp for Id from Panipat Untla village
As pics were taken about one year back (6-10-10)
Not much idea about this wild growing plant
also the possibility of mixing up of two plants cannot be ruled out

pls check with Triumfetta rotundifolia..

its may be T.rotundifolia

Number of Stamens is more then 15 is also help to confirm Triumfetta rotundifolia

Please help me in identifying this small shrub found in a fallow land. Is this a Tiliaceae?

Fruit: 1 cm long
Habitat: dry fallow land
Alt.: 115 m asl
Date: 05 March 2013
Place: Vettangudi Bird Sanctuary, Sivagangai dist., TN

Xanthium strumarium

…, this is from Tiliaceae.. any Triumfetta sp. perhaps the fruit picture led … to conclude otherwise….

Agreeing with … It may be Triumfetta rotundifolia.

Thanks a lot for confirming …

Triumfetta rhomboids!

Yes. Very common weed here especially in wastelands after rains / during rainy season

No, this is Triumfetta rotundifolia Lam. as per images and details herein and as per comparative images at Triumfetta
Triumfetta rhomboidea Jacq. has 10 stamens and leaves a bit different.

Wild Plant for ID : Nasik : 27SEP21 : AK – 047:
A wild plant seen earlier this month (27.9.21) in Gangapur Grasslands.
Reminds me of Xanthium strumarium but the leaves seem different.

Urena lobata L.

I could not guess this one.

Is it correct? Please check !

Triumfetta rotundifolia only,

Thanks for the correction.
Yes, the leaves look convincing.

I think it is looking like Triumfetta rhomboidea

there are clear rounded leaves, not rhomboidea, it’s rotundifolia only,
