pls id


All eight species of Chenopodium, described in the Flora of British India, do have either sinuate or lobed or toothed leaf-margins. Only upper leaves of C. album can be entire.
There is a species, C. polyspermum L., which i think may be similar to your plant. But, don’t know if this plant can be found in India, that too in the wild. However, two Indian botanists are there, in Newcrop.
However, links are :-

This is Atriplex tatarica aggregate (if annual). I don’t believe it is a true A. tatarica, but as I know no species from this group was described from India and North Pakistan. However, nobody confirmed the annual life form of these plants known [probably] from North India. It is a matter of further study. If someone can assist me, we can visit the locations of these plants next year (better in the fruiting stage); the leaf material is also very desirable.

The id of this very common shrub of dry patches is still unresolved on eFI…tentatively it is placed under Lipandra polysperma, which is doubtful..


I think this may also be ‘Atriplex tatarica aggregate (if annual)’ as suggested by … in another post by Balkar ji at Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae Week: BS29: UID Amaranthaceae herb for id from Panipat 


Yes, it is true, it is Atriplex tatarica aggregate. As I wrote such plants are growing in North India and Pakistan. They should be investigated in detaiil, and any collaboration is greatly appreciated.
