Fwd: Impatiens for identification. I.chapaensis? Arunachal Pradesh 25.5.17 : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)- 1 MB each

Pl. check comparative images at Impatiens

I don’t think this is I. chapaensis.

First, balsam floras of Vietnam and India (even NE India) have little in common.
Second, spur of I. chapaensis bends downwards, whereas in your plant upwards.
This way your plant is something around I. drepanophora/ I. stanantha.
I will try to dig deeper when time allows.

After checking FoB I am rather sure that this plant is I. drepanophora as it has spreading, multiflowered inflorescences, yellow flowers with delicate red markings and gland-tipped lateral sepals and mouth of lower sepal.

We need an expert for balsams from NE India – in Sikkim only there could be about fifty species and some recent threads and finds show that this part of your country is still underexplored botanically.
I can said that this one is different from all other…

Are somebody able to bribe :-), lure 🙂 or kidnap 🙂 so wanted expert?


Yes, I too agree to the opinion of … Arunachal Pradesh is an underexplored botanical region of India. Worth exploring!!


I agree that Arunachal Pradesh is still less explored…..and undoubtedly the geographical constraints are the main cause. You cannot find motorable roads everywhere and trekking for days and nights are the only option at many places. But somehow its good for protection of our natural heritage too. 🙂 I worked there for 5 years for my Ph.D. but still feel like working there if getting chance. Botanical Survey of India is doing excellent job exploring remote corners of the state but still a lot has to be done. I hope somebody will take up the Impatiens project soon in Arunachal Pradesh.


Something close to Impatiens tirbinensis Hareesh & M. Sabu ??


….it is Impatiens drepanophora Hook.f.


Thank you ….

May be Impatiens urticifolia.


Impatiens drepanophora Hook. fil. ??


To me appears more closer to images at Impatiens dolichoceras rather than those at Impatiens drepanophora

Plant for ID UP 1 : Mixed thread- 1 correct image as above. 5 posts by 4 authors.

Further id of the impatiens in the Eagle nest sanct.


Second pic is a different flower – it is not an Impatiens at all.


I fully agree with …, you really have very sharp observations sir….

Two pics belong to different plants. First one is of course an Impatiens, most probably Impatiens dolichoceras or something close.
Second pic is from family Zingiberaceae most likely to be Globba. The flowers are drenched in water so they are damaged.


Thats a brilliant identification …! It is Impatiens dolichoceras indeed, a species from China. Must be a new record for Arunachal Pradesh.

If … has another picture showing the leaves or another, it would be great.


I think this may also be Impatiens drepanophora Hook. fil. as per identification by …, of another similar looking plant at  BalsaminaceaeGeraniaceae and Oxalidaceae Week :: RKC_07 :: 10 MAR 13 :: Balsaminaceae » Impatiens sp. 07 from Arunachal

Pl. confirm.


Yes I. derpanophora

Nice find again. Could this be Impatiens dolichoceras?


It could be I. dolichoceras, but it is only a guess


I wonder if this could be I. drepanophora Hook. f.

… and other experts can help.


Maybe, but plants are in different development stages. What is similar is inflorescence with many flowers, general shape and color.

In your plant there are bracts near every pedicel, lacking in other plant, however this other plant is flowering and fruiting and such elelements can easily drop.

From available material I can’t recognize it surely


Impatiens dolichoceras in my view.


I think this may also be Impatiens drepanophora Hook. fil. as per identification by Rajib ji, of another similar looking plant at  BalsaminaceaeGeraniaceae and Oxalidaceae Week :: RKC_07 :: 10 MAR 13 :: Balsaminaceae » Impatiens sp. 07 from Arunachal

Pl. confirm.
