This particular Rumex I had reported as Rumex orientalis, characterized by entire fruit valves. This could also be R. munshii Rech. f., based on type from the same place by Dr. Abid Hussain Munshi, himself an expert on Indian Polygonaceae. This species has been treated under R. paulescens in eFlora of Pakistan

Perhaps experts can help in deciding the exact identity of this plant.


Should we take it as Rumex munshii Rech. fil. as per POWO  Catalogue of Life ?
