PLANT FOR ID 169 SMP NOV 2009 : 10 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (1)

Again from Mahabaleshwar Nov 09………… Appears to be commonly observed but often neglected from ID point of view.


A guess, Sonchus arvensis


Earlier guessed by me to be Sonchus arvensis, but leaves have a different texture.


I think this belongs to genus Gynura….


This looks like Gynura sp. (Asteraceae Family).


Yes … Try to fit in G. angulosa now correctly known as G. cusimbua


Or can it be Gynura amplexicaulis, a new record for India (recently published) ?

Do anyone know the difference between Gynura amplexicaulis & Gynura cusimbua ?


I guess Gynura amplexicaulis Oliv. & Hiern is the correct ID.

Asteraceae Week Part I-Radiate heads:: Gynura bicolor Mahabaleshwar and Purandar SMP -26 : 4 images. Gynura bicolor

Pl. validate.


It appears to be Gynura bicolor.

I think it matches with Gynura cusimbua (D. Don) S. Moore (syn. Gynura angulosa Candolle) as per http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=121445&flora_id=2

Gynura amplexicaulis Oliv. & Hiern ??
