Impatiens sp. for ID plz.
Loc.: Kemmanugundi, Karnataka (ca 1000 m)
Found growing in wild

This looks mostly like Impatiens mullaingiriensis Bhaskar. The short stout spur is not visible in the photo. If you have any side view of the flower with spur pls send it. If you want more details, pls refer my Book: ‘Taxonomic monograph on Impatiens L. of Western Ghats’ (March 2012).

Thanks a lot for the ID. I’ll check for more photographs and upload here soon. Unfortunately I don’t have access to your book here in Korea. Is there any way to get a PDF copy of the same? Or any other published literature?
