I am astonished by the identification capabilities of … with his limited stock of literature.

Please carry on your good work. For any literature consultation, you are welcome to CNH library at Indian Botanic Garden. It is still a treasure of taxonomic literature in IndIa.

When I joined this efI group, about three years ago, I knew nothing. Whatever I have learned about plant identification is all generous contributions of this fantastic group. I am fully indebted to the ‘pillars’ as well as members of this family. I have never imagined that one day I could interact with the most respected persons of our society.
I am grateful to your kind generosity. I surely will meet you when I visit CNH, Shibpur.

It is a good practice to visit herbaria for ID, but it is not always possible/feasible and many a times just an image of the herbarium is sufficient to conclude the ID.]
