Pune Feb 2014
requesting identification of this wild plant growing in a crevice on my terrace ht about 5 cms,
leaves were rough to touch.
is this Blumea laciniata ref FOI


efi page on Blumea sinuata (Syn: (=) Blumea laciniata (Roxb.) DC.


Yes, Sir, it seems to be B. laciniata.


Many thanks … for bringing up the post again and the link to eFi page. It was very helpful
Many thanks … for confirming the Id


Closest I can go is Blumea oxyodonta DC. as per images, details and references herein.


the leaf margin is spiny especially serratures; leaves thick, very hairy– it is Blumea oxydontaspecies epithet meaning oxy-sharp, dentos-with upward pointing teeth

Asteraceae Fortnight Part 2-Discoid Heads: Laggera for id from Panipat- NS 52 : Attachments (5). 4 posts by 2 authors.

This one was shot from Yamuna river adjoining Panipat..
resembles Laggera aurita.. but differs in being densely hairy, arrangement of heads….. shape, margin (they are nearly regularly dentate) and texture of leaves (here they are leathery)..
can this be a different species..

It is Blumea mollis not laggera


I find it more closer to images at Blumea oxyodonta DC.  as per images, details and references herein and as per FOC illustration 


yes I think it may be B.oxydonta based on leaf and indumentum; to differntiate Blumea and Laggera we must observe the anthers.

Blumea laciniata from Panni khoh MP
pls validate
This herb was shot on 20-1-12 from a somewhat shady place in Panni Khoh water fall

Having strong odour this herb was about 1 feet high only


If this plant has strong odour this may not be Blumea laciniata DC.
I checked two Blumea today and found that B. lacera DC. has strong odour, somewhat like that of merigold flowers, but B. laciniata has much less odour and the scent is different.
I attach combined photographs of both the species, they are growing side by side, both are between 1 ft to 1.25 ft. (5 images.)
I copy old records of Blumea laciniata from ‘Bengal Plants’, ‘Flora of British India’ and ‘Flora Indica’ :-
  1. Leaves on upper part of stem few, large, laciniate ……… (Bengal Plants)
  2. Usually taller than B. lacera, from which it is difficult to distinguish specimens with leaves more entire than usual…… Roxburgh says that this differ from B. lacera in having all the leaves laciniate, to which i suppose may be added its being scentless. ….. (F. B. I.)
  3. Of Blumea lacera, FLORA INDICA notes, “…. The whole plant has a pretty strong smell of turpentine.”

I think this plant is some other species than B. lacera or B. laciniata.


I paste the links of related pages of old records :-
Bengal Plants –
Flora of British India :-
Flora Indica :-

Thank you,


Closest I can as per comparative images at Blumea is Blumea oxyodonta DC.
