I saw this small herb in a fallow field yesterday (22.12.13) in Thane dist, near Tungareshwar WLS.
Vahlia digyna (Retz.) Kuntze (= V. viscosa Roxb.), (= Bistella digyna (Retz.) Bullock); Fam: Vahliaceae. It is often confused with Oldenlandia. It belongs to polyptalous family
Many thanks, that seems to be the correct id.
This is available in moist places, falow paddy fields. It is reported in flora of Tamil nadu
yes, seen in sandy riverbeds too
…, I wonder if it is Vahlia. Can you pls check if it is Aizoon canariensis of Aizoaceae?
I think that’s unlikely since 1) Aizoon is a prostrate or diffuse plant 2) it is a dry area plant.
