Plant for identification 150712MK03:
Please help me in identifying this herb found in evergreen moist forests. The leaf measures 5×3 cm. Flower measures 5×1 cm and the plant about 30-50cm in height. The habitat is an evergreen forest.

Is this a Phyllanthaceae member?
Place: Valparai, TN
Date: 11July 2012

This is a species of Reidea presently merged with the genus Phyllanthus. I think this is an interesting species!!! Go ahead!!
I can assist you … for its identification but I need at least one specimen


Many thanks …, I may revisit the place and do sampling these specimens first; also I have to take specimens of Impatiens spp. there.


Appears somewhat close to images at Phyllanthus gageanus (Gamble) M.Mohanan
