I think something else. 

If Begonia, pl. check the link I sent you in another thread regarding Monograph for north east India.  


Some friends suggested it to be Begonia josephi A.DC. ! Correct ??


Yes, B. josephii, the only peltate species in the region

Which Begonia ??

Appears close to images at Begonia josephi A.DC.
Pl. check

I guess it is matching …


I think this is Begonia josephii – quite a variable species. 


Seeking your views in the following matter:
“On your Eflorofindia page you state and show in photos that B josephi is peltate and show links to pages with other photos of a begonia labeled B. josephi that are not peltate http://www.asianflora.com/Begoniaceae/Begonia-josephi.htm and http://gardenbreizh.org/photos/vmb3/photo-305964.html.
There seems to be some other discussion on that page about it, but there seems to be no clear resolution to the question. Are these links an error or is the plant both peltate and not? 
If B. josephi can only be peltate, perhaps these two links should be deleted to avoid confusion, and the links’ owners should be informed of the morphological conflict. 
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
