Pl find attached the photos of Melochia nodiflora.
It was observed at Vellore, Tamil Nadu.
As I could not retrieve my original photos immediately, I attach the photos taken from my Google photo account at lessor resolutions.

Thanks a lot, …, for new addition to efloraofindia.




This wild herb, flowering/fruiting in its last stages was recorded from ACJ Bose Botanical Garden, Howrah, West Bengal..
