Interesting Caryophyllaceae member. Are you able to see bifid/ bipartite petals in flower? If yes it is Stellaria. However, leaves do not resemble to any Stellaria known to me. Hope you have specimens; critical study will reveal the ID.


Stellaria – species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


Pictures are not sufficient to reach to correct ID. Better pics showing floral details and leaves will help.


Photo of the plant is hazy and lacks clarity for distinct identity of this species of Swertia.


These are some other pics of the same. Kindly help.

Really ambiguous. The petals are not clear even in close up, but 5 stigmas are visible. I would go with Cerastium if petals are slightly lobed, suggesting Cerastium fontanum subsp. triviale (Link) Jalas but petals are too short then leaves are very different suggesting Stellaria graminea, but petals don’t support.


Resembles to be a member of Caryophyllaceae. Looks to be Stellaria sp., but structure of petals does”t match


Thanks to all experts for critically examining the picture and giving the views.


It is Caryophyllaceae only.

To me it is Stellaria uliginosa.


Thanks, … I think you are right. seems to match with images at
