ID Request– Herb at Unchalli Falls- karnataka-PKA-Nov-03 : 8 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (6)

Seen this small herb at Unchalli falls, North karnataka.
Requesting ID..


Looks like some Ophiorrhiza sp (Rubiaceae).


Yes, the fruits are characteristic. The following five species are occurring in Karnataka: O. brunonis, O. codyensis, O. hirsutula, O mungos and O. rugosa var. prostrata.  There is a publication on the genus for India by D.B.Deb and D. Mondal and the publisher is The Scientific Publishers, Jodhpur, India. Digital Flora of Karnataka may help.


We have only one species O.fasciculata here in Uttarakhand which it is not. 


Ophiorrhiza rugosa Wall. is reported from Udupi. Pl check!


It should be Ophiorrhiza rugosa

Perusal of keys from Flora of Bhutan at Ophiorrhiza leads me to Ophiorrhiza rugosa Wall.

Ophiorrhiza … ???

I am sending book print about Ophiirrhiza found in Kathmandu valley. Hope it would help to identify some of Ophirrhiza from Kathmandu valley I have posted.

According to this book inly 3 found in Kathmandu valley !

Pl. check in the net if any of them matches.


Ophiorriza is a bit difficult for me !

Not correct images corresponding to the names in the Net

But the first issue is if it the correct genus.

Yes it looks like Ophiorrhiza mungos


O. mungos not listed in Nepal !


It is Ophiorhiza sp.


It is species of Ophiorrhiza

Thank you … for validating the genus.

Still awaiting for the specific ID !

I think appears close to images at flowersofindia

Thank you all. I guess it is matching.

Pl. also check some other of your postings on this genus.

… also suggested it could be O. fasciculata. I have enclosed

Ophiorrhiza found in the Kathmandu valley for reference.
Or could it be O. thomsonii  ??

I meant that you may be having similar postings in other threads with the same id. Pl. also try to identify those threads.


But looks different from images at researchgate
It is possible that images at FOI are wrongly identified. 


I had about 5/6 Ophiorrhiza submitted in the EFI but non are identified properly or still creating confusion and looks like a difficult species to identify. In this case also I cannot say definitely about the confusion.


Images in FOI has been corrected to flowersofindia

Pl. also id your other threads with this.

I shall try !

Do you have keys for Ophiorriza species in any of the books you have ?
I am unable to find these anywhere on net.

I find both types of inflorescence in Ophiorrhiza mungos also as per

Difficult part is Ophiorrhiza mungos not listed in Nepal !

If you provide the keys, we could possibly sort out the species.

I think close to Ophiorrhiza rugosa Wall. as per comparative images at Ophiorrhiza

I think Images by Thingam ji in FOI may also be Ophiorrhiza rugosa Wall. as per comparative images & keys at Ophiorrhiza
