ANMAR41/63 Quisqualis malabarica : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (7) 
Family: Combretaceae
Date: 21st March 2015
Place: Aralam WLS, Kerala


IPNI gives the following name change:
Combretum malabaricum (Bedd.) Sujana, Ratheesh & Anil Kumar — J. Bot. Res. Inst. Texas 6(2): 453. 2012 [23 Nov 2012] 


petals are very narrow and single color. must be a variant


The word Quiqualis means confusing. The newly opened flowers always pale pink or off white and later become more colourful.

Makutta Ghat Karnataka
Date: 24 FEB 2017 … Elevation range: ~ 87 – 263 m (288 – 865 ft) asl
Quisqualis malabarica Bedd. … (family: Combretaceae)
Dear friends,
While attempting to identify this Quisqualis, came to find earlier plant sighted at Yana as Quisqualis malabaricaPrashant’s in 2011, and mine in 2012, turns out to be a new species Combretum shivannae Gholave, Kambale, Lekhak & S. R. Yadav as published in KEW BULLETIN (2015) 70:33 


Combretum malabaricum now.


I urge you to read through KEW BULLETIN (2015) 70:33Combretum shivannae (Combretaceae), a new species from India A. R. Gholave, S. S. Kambale, M. M. Lekhak & S. R. Yadav … It has both the species compared and illustrated.


Thank you …, I have a copy of the protologue of Combretum shivannae. What I intended to mean is simply that Quisqualis malabarica has been transferred to the genus Combretum


Apologies, …. I somehow confused myself. 

I will change Quisqualis malabarica to Combretum malabaricum.


Fantastic Dear … This was first spotted by me on 20-01-2011. Good that you had now sorted out the ID issues..
