Didymocarpus species so far in efi


Pl also check with Didymocarpus pulcher C.B. Clarke

Habit : Herb ?
Habitat : Wild


This does not appear to be Strobilanthes sp.

Pl. check Didymocarpus species in efi.


I think this is Didymocarpus sp. Of family Gesneriaceae.


This is a species of Gesneriaceae and I am afraid I don’t know these.


I agree with the comments of …. This is definitely a species of Didymocarpus (Gesneriaceae), possibly D. primulifolius. One of my future projects is to get clear about the species of Didymocarpus in India, China etc. So please continue to send photos to me, but don’t be disappointed when I cannot (or presently will not) distribute species names. One of the characteristics of a special group within Didymocarpus is the presence of brown or golden, one- or several-celled glands on the vegetative parts, especially on the leaf underside. Perhaps you can instruct your cooperators to take photos of the leaf underside at the highest possible magnification and resolution. This would help a lot in the identification and classification of the species in Didymocapus.
