Fagonia species


May this be Fagonia indica?


Yes fagonia


efi page on Fagonia indica
Fagonia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


It is Fagonia cretica


Fagonia cretica does not occur in India as per distribution list of major databases as also BSI Flora of India. This is I think F. bruguieri only.
