KAS Week:: PKA31:: – Flemingia nilgiriensis / gracilis: Would like to know the ID for this herb. Is it Flemingia nilgiriensis or F.gracilis??


following is the key character
F. nilgiriensis…….. roots are tuberous
F. gracilis….. roots are not tuberous


We have discussed this earlier too. It is not advisable to dig out the plants as it is nearly threatened species. One more character is Leaf which is nigropunctate in F. gracilis. I don’t know how much importance it has!
Most botanists say that the species occurring on Kas plateau is Flemingia nilgheriensis


Agreed, and am sure none of us (including me) have checked the root type as it demands uprooting the whole plant! But if the plant on Kas is F.nilgiriensis, the negro punctate cannot be a distinguishing character as the leaves of the plant at Kas ARE punctate. Please see the image of punctate leaves posted by me in my F.nilgiriensis post.

I only remember the tiny sparkling spots on the inflorescence when you look at it through the camera lens.
Probably that the reason why it is called as Jartari in Marathi.
