While looking for Alectra I found that Hippuris is placed in Scrophulariaceae but the current position is in Plantaginaceae.

Can we change it to correct position?
During 1-8 Sept. I was out of Pantnagar for a field visit to Ralam Valley and Barjikang Pass in Pithoragarh District of Uttarakhand. It is hoped that few new additions to eFI will be there in the images taken during this trekking. I will upload them after few days.


Thanks, … Yes, it should be corrected. We are hoping to see your jewels.
