Malvaceae Fortnight:: Hibiscus Sp.?? NSJ 14 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)

Hibiscus sp from Amboli. Pl validate.

Hibiscus species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

Pl send the photographs of the leaves also for ID.

Unfortunately these are the only photographs available with me.

It might belong to the Hibiscus surattensisH. aculeatus group. More details should help confirm the ID.

Hibiscus surattensis L. ???

It can be either Hibiscus hispidissimus Griff. (most likely) or Hibiscus surattensis L., as per details and keys herein.

But details are not clear.

OK … !

Backwaters of Ernakulam.

Looks like one of the wild species of  Hibiscus or Abelomaschus.  Certainly it is a member of the Malvaceae .

Could this be H hispidissimus or H surattensis?
…, can u please post some more pics?

I  am sure it is not H.surattensis. I have seen H.surattensis.

Looking at the leaves, this looks like the rare and endangered plant,
Lobed Leaved Mysore Mallow (Decaschistia trilobata) from Malvaceae family.
Flowers of India

I think this is a Hibiscus species.(H. furcatus or H. surattensis?)
