 With regards to Eriocaulon baramaticum: I am sharing a file, with the captioned subject, on a new recent discovery (2008-2009) of Eriocaulon baramaticum which is said to be discovered and endemic from Baramati region of Maharashtra. I googled for image of it but couldn’t find any satisfying picture. I would like to request members if they can, subject to the availability, share the image of captioned species on this forum.
