Nilgiris: Impatiens for identification 141112MK02: Please help me to identify this Balsam plant found commonly in the high altitude grasslands. The plant height is not more that 30 cm.

Leaf: 5 cm long
Flower: 1.5-2 cm across
Date: 21 Oct 2012
Place: Mukruti NP, Nilgiris, TN
Alt.: 2350 m asl


At the first look, this species looks like Impatiens fasciculata Lam. (=I. vivekananthanii Jyosna & Janarth.) which was hi.therto mistaken for I. chinensis L. Pls check Wight Ic.t.748. 1844. Wight also collected it from Nilgiris. I have collected it from Talacauvery, Sringeri and other places in Karnataka also and included in my Taxonomic monograph on Impatiens of Western Ghats (March 2012).

Dear friends,
Please validate the ID.    


Impatiens fasciculata Lam. – Usually mistaken for I. chinensis.  Beautiful photos indeed !


Would like to know the distribution of Impatiens fasciculata Lam. and whether it has any synonyms.


I. fasciculata is distributed through out southern part of Western Ghats. I. vivekananthanii Dessai and Janardanam is made synonym by me.
