Identified as Cyanotis adscendens by …


Cyanotis fasciculata photographed from along Chikkamagalur mullayanagiri Road, 26-9-2015.

The 1st three images appear to be of Cyanotis tuberosa (Roxb.) Schult. & Schult.f. , as per images and details herein.
Not sure about the last 2.

It’s beautiful. Not C. fasciculata, it is closer to Cyanotis adscendens.

I am now really confused. I agree with you … the last two images are different from first three, and I found them identified as C. tuberosa at another place in my database. Now that … has identified first three as  it is closer to Cyanotis adscendens., it would be interesting to know the ID of last two. May be … can help. .
