Looking like a member of family Rubiaceae


Plectronia rhedeii (Canthium angustifolium). The last picture is a different plant though


Thanks, … But Plectronia rheedei (DC.) Bedd.is a synonym of Canthium rheedei DC. (also checked An Excursion Flora of Central Tamilnadu, India By K. M. Matthew) & Canthium angustifolium Roxb. is a different plant.
Pl. clarify.
It seems to be Canthium angustifolium Roxb. [Plectronia rheedii (DC.) Bedd] except last image DSC_0557.jpg
Canthium parviflorum Lam bears yellow fruits. Common along the coast on lateritic soil.

Thanks, … But Plectronia rheedei (DC.) Bedd.is a synonym of Canthium rheedei DC. (also checked An Excursion Flora of Central Tamilnadu, India By K. M. Matthew) & Canthium angustifolium Roxb. is a different plant.
Pl. clarify.

I just went through Flora of Karnataka-Aanalysis; Flora of Udupi and Flora of madras Presidency.
What I understood is
1. Canthium rheedii DC. and Plectronia rheedii (DC.) Bedd are same
2. Canthium parviflorum Lamk and Plectronia parviflora Bedd are same
But Canthium rheedii var. angustifolium Gamble is Canthium angustifolium Roxb. (citation in Gambles flora indicates it is from Flora of British India); which may be different from C. rheedii.
You may please cross check in FBI, I dont have FBI flora

Kannada name(s) of Canthium angustifolium Roxb.:

Please help with the following Kannada names of Canthium angustifolium Roxb. if you find them valid …
ambagani … FLORA OF KARNATAKA, A Checklist, Volume – 2: Gymnosperms and Angiosperms. 1 – 1002 (Published by Karnataka Biodiversity Board)
mullukkarai… Floristic inventory in the seven medicinal plants conservation areas MPCAs of Karnataka, India by P S Udayan
The second name seems to be in Tamil, inadvertently listed as a Kannada name, but I am not sure.

I will check and get back to you as soon as possible.


Perhaps mullukkarai is actually mullu kaare = ಮುಳ್ಳು ಕಾರೆ … because Canthium coromandelicum has following names: kaare gida, kaare hannu gida, kaare mara, kaare mullu gida


… interpretation is correct.
‘ Mullukkarai is actually mullu kaare = ಮುಳ್ಳು ಕಾರೆ’. ‘Mullukarai’ is Tamil name (As I spent my professional career in Chennai I know Tamil also). Hence you may use it as mullu kaare = ಮುಳ್ಳು ಕಾರೆ  in Kannada.
