Brassicaceae Herb for Id-NS March, 2017- 01 : 11 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (6)

Please suggest the identity of this Cruciferous herb, recorded this month from my native place in District Kaithal, Haryana..
I could not fit this into anything known to me..


Did you try with comparative images at Brassicaceae ?


Thanks …, Yes the page is quite rich, but I still have to go through.. Will do it and report back at the earliest..!!


Pl. check for any Lepidium species (though not appearing to match with any species so far in efi) as per comparative images at Brassicaceae 


Is there any possibility of this being Cochlearia cochlearioides as per BSI’s efloraindia…?? 

Additionally, this taxon is already reported from Haryana..
The information can be seen here, the flowering and fruiting period, however, disagrees with my specimen.



Thanks … for further confirmation and links..!! 

I think there are not enough images of living specimens on internet to compare..
