Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze

Kalanchoe integra: This is related to … post of Kalanchoe spathulata – which is integrated in eFI taxon K. integra.
Please, see the attached screenshot that informs Kalanchoe integra has some confusion. According to GRIN it is synonym of K. spathulata DC. –http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?430177.
Kalanchoe spathulata DC. is accepted taxon in GRIN – http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?21092.
Flora of British India, vol.2, p414 informs that the plant is distributed in tropical Himalaya, from Bhutan to Kashmir.
Though The Plant List, FoC and FoP equate K. spathulata DC. with Kalanchoe integra (Medikus) Kuntze, I think we should maintain the taxon as Kalanchoe spathulata DC. as in GRIN and In F. B. I.
More so because :-
  1. FoNA doesn’t equate K. integra with K. spathulatahttp://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=241000241
  2. Cotyledon spathulata (DC.) Poir. of FoC is different in The Plant List – http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2740351

Why should we go for confusion when we have clear dictate from GRIN and F. B. I.?

Thanks, …, for such a discussion looking at the accuracy of efi site. More such discussions at efi are welcome.
I have gone through your details furnished.
RegardingWhy should we go for confusion when we have clear dictate from GRIN and F. B. I.?”-> I think Both your FBI page as well as GRIN did not mention Kalanchoe integra (Medikus) Kuntze anywhere directly. Record of GRIN has been updated in 2005, while The Plant List was released in 2010.
Kalanchoe integra auct. (not of the author) is a different species from Kalanchoe integra (Medikus) Kuntze.

Thank you for elaborating on two K. integra.
Though The Plant List is latest (than the GRIN) yet it offers only one STAR for K. spathulata DC.!

What does F.B.I. mean ? Full form please !

Yes matches with images at Kalanchoe spathulata DC.
There is an issue w.r.t. its nomenclature. Pl. see Kalanchoe integra

yes, Kalanchoe sp

Thank you ma’am. Which species is it?

without the leaves I cant tell. wonder if anybody can…

Leaves have been attached in the original set in photo DSC_0390. I am attaching cropped views of the same. Please take a look ma’am. Attachments (2)

thanks but those are not the leaves

they are the bracts of the flowering spike
they protect the flower buds as they develop and the spike shoot up above the rosette of real leaves…
real leaves are at the bottom
in this case it would be way at the bottom almost near the soil

Oh! New to me ma’am. Thank you so much. Didnt know this.
Will make sure to look more carefully next time.
I think we should leave it at Kalanchoe sp. then.

yes that’s a wise choice and next time take a few more pics even if you think you have enough
yellow flowers do occur in k. blossfeldiana
but i dont know if other kalanchoes with oval leaves do that… I think they do
but for that one need the whole plant to look at…

I suppose Kalanchoe blossfeldiana which comes in various colors.

To me appears more closer to images at Kalanchoe spathulata DC.

Today I d like to know the name of following flower.

Place: Ramgarh
Timing: May End
Type: Wild
Flower Diameter:1cm
Height: 30cm

–  It is a variety of “Flaming Katy“. The bot name is something like “Brosfeldiana“.

– This is one of the ornamental Kalanchoe species.  Very common in Chennai gardens during Jan – Feb.   However, the most common one is the red variety.

– I agree with .., Kalanchoe blossfeldiana

To me appears more closer to images at Kalanchoe spathulata DC.


Small Yellow flower(Samir Takaochi 3):
Could you advice me about name of this flower?
Place: Ramgarh
Timing: May End
Type: Wild
Flower Diameter:1cm

i think this is Kalanchoe blossfeldiana
Family: Crassulaceae
Kalanchoe, Christmas Kalanchoe
Origin: Madagascar

To me appears more closer to images at Kalanchoe spathulata DC.

Kalanchoe spathulata DC. ??

I think it looks different from images at Kalanchoe spathulata DC.
Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Kalanchoe

http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=116917 are listed.

Also does not seem to match with the other species mentioned i.e. Kalanchoe integra.

I guess this is Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze only.
But CoL and GBIF gavevthe accepted name as Kalanchoe deficiens (Forskål) Asch. & Schweinf.
5 very high res. images.

Flowering in October !

Yes, id appears to be correct as per images in eFI.
POWO gives Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze (syn: Kalanchoe spathulata DC.)

Waited for one year for flowering at home.

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana Poelln.??

Do you have any wild species listed in your books?
I think Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze may be reported, but flowers are yellow.
So one possibility is as suggested by … (but that is a cultivated species):

This plant was collected in the forest, and it is growing wild. Not cultivated.
1 attachment.

What is the 1st species?

Maybe Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze as the book says flowers light yellow-pink.

Kalanchoe floribunda var. glabra

Is it K. roseus ?

Where from did you think of it ?
I did not find any specimen or images of this on the net.

Kalanchoe rosea C.B.Clarke I think.

On what basis?

1 high res. image.

Some botanists (I did not remember their names) told me this plant was Kalanchoe roseus which also found in Nagaland. But this plant was identified as Kalanchoe integra by BSI, Shillong.

I am keeping it as Kalanchoe integra (Medik.) Kuntze only for the time being.
