Sharing some pictures I guess is Strobilanthes pentstemonoides (Wall. ex Nees) T. Anders. (accepted name) shot at Surya Binayak Forest, Bhaktapur, Nepal on 26 September 2016 at 4800 ft.


I do not think it matches with images at Strobilanthes penstemonoides


I think we need help from …


Looks good to me for a rather immature Strobilanthes pentastemonoides var pentastemonoides. Note glabrous corolla, glabrous leaves, only weakly anisophyllous, paoery (but not yet scarious) bracteoles etc.

Another Strobilanthes? ABJAN01/02 : 6 posts by 3 authors. 10 images.
While collecting a sample to verify S. glutinosus, I came across this plant. The smaller flowers are darker blue and the short stalked leaves are winged. More than a dozen plants are flowering in a dry nullah. Could this be another Strobilanthes sp.? Please advise.

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

Images of Strobilanthes glutinosus


Please check for:
Strobilanthes wallichii Nees in Wall., Pl. Asiat. Rar. 3: 87. 1832; C.B. Clarke in Hook.f., Fl. Brit. India 4: 471. 1884.

In case it is not matching, please check for S. attenuata or S. angustifrons or S. bracteata. Meanwhile I will confirm its identity with John Wood.


I think this is Strobilanthes penstemonoides although it is hardly typical as the flowers are not truly “capitellate” and I can’t see any sign of the scarious caducous bracteoles. However the corolla is glabrous, the sepals are glandular with one calyx lobe distinctly longer than the others so I think it must be that species. I would like to congratulate Ashwini Bhatia on the photos of the floral details. These show more clearly than I have ever seen the distinctive ellipsoid/suborbicular anthers, with the shorter anthers recurved, which are defining features of the “Goldfussia” group.


Thank you … Please pass on my thanks to …

If I understand it correctly this one is S. penstemonoides and not S. penstemonoides var. dalhousiana. Am I correct in assuming this? Anurag’s photos on the efloraofindia database under S. penstemonoides have different characteristic than my sample. Please advise.
In a different post I am putting S. penstemonoides and S. glutinosa side by side for comparison. Would Dr Wood mind looking at this mail and comment again? I will be grateful for his advice.

Strobilanthes dalhousianus ABAUG2016/61 : 6 posts by 2 authors. 16 images.
These came out at the end of July and I had been meaning to collect a sample for a closer look as I have made mistakes identifying plants of this genus before. After some deliberation I am of the opinion that this is Strobilanthes dalhousianus (see here and here). The Plantlist accepts this name and does not mention S. penstemenoides var. dalhousiana).
Of course I could still be making a mistake. Please correct me if it is so. My apologies for a large number of photos but I thought it necessary for a confirmed ID

Sepals look different from … images at Strobilanthes penstemonoides var. dalhousieana 


This is Strobilanthes penstemonoides (Nees) T. Anderson.

 var dalhousiana (Strobilanthes dalhousiana) is simply a variant where the undersurface of the leaf is pubescent on the veins. I can’t see if that is the case in this example but it is fairly minor difference hardly worthy of recognition although it is more common further north (Himachal Pradesh, Kashmir).


I think this is Strobilanthes penstemonoides although it is hardly typical as the flowers are not truly “capitellate” and I can’t see any sign of the scarious caducous bracteoles. However  the corolla is glabrous, the sepals are glandular with one calyx lobe distinctly longer than the others so I think it must be that species. I would like to congratulate Ashwini Bhatia on the photos of the floral details. These show more clearly than I have ever seen the distinctive ellipsoid/suborbicular anthers, with the shorter anthers recurved, which are defining features of the “Goldfussia” group

Strobilanthes pentstemonoides (Nees) T. Anderson in J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 9: 477. 1867; C.B. Clarke in Hook.f., Fl. Brit. India 4: 460. 1884; Yamazaki in Hara, Fl. Eastern Himalayas 1: 305. 1966; H.J. Chowdhery & al., Materials Fl. Arunachal Pradesh 2: 256.2008. Type: Nepal, Wallich 2340 (iso. K-W, E, K).
Syn.: Goldfussia pentstemonoides Nees; Goldfussia flexuosa Nees; Ruellia capitata Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don (non Goldfussia capitata Nees nec Strobilanthes capitata (Nees) T. Anderson); 
There are two varieties 
Key to varieties
Distinctly anisophyllous; stems and leaves invariably glabrous; leaves sessile specially upper ones; calyx exclusively hairy; corolla lobes hairy on margin; longer filaments hairy…….. var. pentstemonoides
Weakly anisophyllous; stems and leaves invariably hairy; leaves petiolate; calyx glabrous or hairy; corolla lobes not hairy on margin; all staminal filaments glabrous… var. dalhousiana
Strobilanthes pentstemonoides (Nees) T. Anderson var. pentstemonoides

Much branched shrubs, 1-3 m high; stems quadrangular, glabrous. Leaves in pairs clearly anisophyllous, ovate-elliptic or elliptic-lanceolate, ca 16 x 6 cm, cuneate at base and decurrent on petiole, closely serrate at margin, acuminate at tip, glabrous, coriaceous, lineolate on both surfaces, dark green above and grayesh green beneath; secondary nerves ca 7 pairs arcuate, slightly raised beneath; petioles ca 1.5 cm; upper leaves completely sessile. Inflorescences capitate, subglobose, 1-3 heads enclosing by outer bracts on peduncles, 2-3 flowers in each head. terminal on main branches, much exceeding the subtending leaves, heads 1-2.5 cm, glandular and exactly globular when young; peduncles 2-8 cm long, glabrous, sometimes glandular-hairy, 1-2 together; bracts orbicular, concave, 8 mm-1.2 cm, obtuse, whitenend, glabrous, early caducous; bracteoles absent. Calyx 8 mm in flower, 1.2 cm in fruit, divided nearly to the base, lobes linear-lanceolate, acute at tip, invariably hairy; one of the lobes distinctly longer than others. Corolla 3.5 cm, minutely pubescent on narrow part of the tube, glabrous outside, pale purple, more or less curved at the base of ventricose portion; lobes 5, orbicular, sometimes sparsely long white hairy on margins, emarginated at apex. Stamens 4, included; staminal sheath extends 1/3 of ventricose portion, hairy on the margin; filaments in two heights; shorter filaments recurved, glabrous; longer filaments hairy; anthers 2-celled, muticous at base. Ovary on a disk; style puberulous, subexerted; stigma dilated above; one of the lobes suppressed. Capsules oblong-clavate, 1.5 cm, glandular-pubescent at apex, 4-seeded; seeds ovate, 3 mm, hairy; areoles very small.

Fl.& Fr.: August-March (flowering period varies in different places).

Habitat: Subtropical Himalaya, upto 2000-2500 m from Nepal to Bhutan, frequent, on river banks amidst grasses.

Distrib.: World: Bhutan, India and Nepal. India: Arunachal Pradesh (Tirap and Subansiri), Assam (Sibsagar), Nagaland (Naga hills) and Uttarakhand (Dehra Dun). 

Notes: S. pentstemonoides is known from extensive collections of Nepal. The leaves are very variable in size but are essentially elliptic in shape, flowers in pedunculate, bracteate heads terminal on axillary branchlets. The branchlets are usually relatively long, clearly exceeding the leaves and bearing a pair of relatively persistent leaflets at the branching point. The peduncles are usually glandular-pilose. The only difference between S. pentstemonoides and S. dalhousiana from the Western Himalaya is in the indumentum of the leaves and stem. In the former it is quite glabrous whereas in S.dalhousienana the stems and leaf veins are distinctly hairy.

I believe your plant is Strobilanthes pentastemonoides var. pentastemonoides. Note anisophyllous plant, glabrous unequal leaves; flowers capitellate, corolla glabrous, curved, bracteoles scarious, caducous. It is well-known from Central Nepal.

I think this to be Pteracanthus urticifolius. The mass flowering that we saw was Aechmanthera gossypina.


I may be wrong. pls see this link as i compared my plant with this.

The Blue trumphet flowering all around Kalatope.  Attachments (2)


I also was of the opinion that this is Pteracanthus sp. I think we had both on our trip. Yours is Pteracanthus with longer flowers and longer corolla tube on longer stalks and leaves greener beneath, whereas Aechmanthera gossypina (synj: Ruellia tomentosa) has smaller flowers (2-2.5 cm long) on shorter axillary cluster and leaves tomentose beneath. I will upload it separately.


Your plant resembles one on FOI but I think that identification is also wrong. Please see mine and decide.


Yes Sir As my id was solely based on FOI so i was wrong Thanks for correction and throwing light on matter


Feedback as per another thread:

The upload by … from Chakrata road as Aechmanthera gossypina, to me appears a Strobilanthes dalhousieanus. pl. validate.


It is not Aechmanthera gossypina.. It should be Strobilanthes dalhousianus.


Thanks … So my conclusion was right.


I think this is Strobilanthes penstemenoides (Nees) T. Anderson var. dalhousieana Kuntze. It is certainly not Aechmanthera gossypina (Correctly Stroblanthes tomentosa (Nees) J.R.I.Wood) but it is difficult to be completely certain without some technical details. Is the corolla glabrous or hirsute at least on the corolla lobes?


From the enlarged pics it appears glabrous only,


Thanks, …, Is Strobilanthes penstemenoides (Nees) T. Anderson var. dalhousieana Kuntze same as Strobilanthes dalhousieanus (Nees) Clarke ?


Yes, but no one has recognised Strobilanthes dalhousieana as a distinct species for many years.


Can it be Strobilanthes penstemonoides var. penstemonoides as the leaves appears to be glabrous ?


I think this is Strobilanthes penstemonoides var. penstemonoides. Note glabrous leaves and corolla and scarious bracts

To me looks different from images at Strobilanthes lachenensis

Might be Strobilanthes bheriensis (Shakya) J.R.I. Wood but inflorescence rather depauperate. it is often difficult to identify specimens with poorly developed inflorescence.

Pl. see more images.


It is difficult to be completely certain without a specimen but the form of growing, leaf shape and indumentum of the calyx looks right. However S… specimen has only one pair of flowers so not too easy to interpret. A well-developed inflorescence is important in identifying Strobilanthes. I attach an image of the type – there are very few collections of this species and more and better material is needed to be completely certain.

ID for this Strobilanthes sp. please !

I think this is Strobilanthes pentastemenoides (Nees) T. Anderson. It has the characteristic glabrous corolla and capitellate inflorescence. The bracts have fallen (as is common in more mature specimens) but one or two have fallen and are sticking to the glandular sepals and pedicels. I like the first (habit) photo as well as the details. By the way the type of S. pentastemonoides comes from the Kathmandu Valley.

Strobilanthes

Absolutely.


I missed this but it looks like an inflorescence rachis of Strobilanthes pentastemonoides from which most flowers (incl. calyx) have fallen- difficult to be certain.
