Euphorbiaceae :: Chrozophora prostrata MK MAR-002 2016 : 6 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (5)

Name: Chrozophora prostrata Dalz. (Syn.: C. plicata)

Family: Euphorbiaceae
Location: Tirupathi suburbs, AP
Date: 04 Feb 2016

Is this plant rightly identified?

Correct id.

This appears to be Chrozophora prostrata Dalz. However, the nature of ovary and fruits are necessary for correct identification. If they are stellate-pubescent then it is C. prostrata. If they are lepidote then it may be C. rottleri. Please check.

For me the ID is correct.

Chrozophora sp.

Could it be Chrozophora plicata?

Might be ma’am, but possible only for familiars without complete information,

I had suggested the same.
Leaves are looking similar.
