Please help me to identify this epiphytic herb found on a semi-evergreen forest. Is this from Urticaceae?
Date: 27 Dec 2012
Place: Kolli Hills, TN
Alt.: 1450 m asl

It looks like Procris sps. (Urticaceae) to me.

Thank you all, most possibly Procris crenata Robinson (Urticaceae). I found this plant also growing as a lithophyte over rocks nearby.


Procris crenata is correct ID!
