Which Lysimachia ??

Pl. check with species available at Lysimachia  


I think close to images at Lysimachia japonica Thunb. as per comparative images at Lysimachia

Thank you …! Lysimachia deltoidea Wight

No. Lysimachia japonica subsp. japonica (i.e. Lysimachia japonica Thunb.) and not Lysimachia deltoidea (syn. Lysimachia japonica Thw.)

I think we should we keep it as Lysimachia japonica subsp. japonica (Plants epunctate or translucent glandular punctate as per keys in Flora of China)


The corolla shows red glands and is likely to be of L. debilis. The size of the corolla and calyx lobes are other indicators which we can’t verify from these photos. The undersurface of leaves is surprisingly clear and doesn’t help.


I can not see them. Where are they ?


1 cropped image


Can not these be epunctate or translucent glandular punctate as in Lysimachia japonica subsp. japonica ?


I am assuming that the red colour points to red punctate glandular. Translucent should let some light filter through.


So we take it as L. debilis ?

Yes

There is already some discussion on the nomenclature of this species. We seem to have decided on Lysimachia japonica ssp. japonica following the Flora of Pakistan and … had pointed out earlier that the Plantlist and Plants of the World Online treat L. debilis as an accepted name. Also, Flora of China treats L. debilis as a separate species from L. japonica. I have followed the pdf here to look at the characteristic features of both these species. I am listing some differences for easy reference:
No. 60 in the pdf, L. japonica: leaves transparent glandular punctate, calyx 3-4mm enlarging to 7-8mm in fruit, corolla 5-8mm in diameter, style 2-3mm, flowering in March-April
No. 89 in the pdf, L. debilis: leaves (and corolla) reddish glandular punctate, calyx 7mm enlarging to 1cm in fruit and reddish glandular punctate, corolla 6×2=12mm in diameter, tube 2mm, style 4mm, flowering in June
Following these characters, our plants here and those posted by … are almost certainly Lysimachia debilis. Flower size, red glands and flowering time are strong indicators. I am attaching some photos showing these and some other properties clearly.
The question, which resource to follow, however, remains. I am not sure which authority supersedes the other. I am inclined to follow L. debilis in the meantime. 
All plants are photographed in June between 1750-2000m above Mcleodganj in Dharamshala, HP.

Thank you … for detailed clarification. Could you please look into my other posts on Lysimachia?

I will be happy to help if I can. I am familiar with only five species found here: L. debilis, L. pyramidalis, L. chenopodioides, L. lobelioides, and L. prolifera and can look at your plants concerning these species. Could you please forward them again to me at this address?
Attaching the link to study all Lysimachia species here again for reference.

Thanks, …, for the detailed post.
I shall be reviewing all our posts related to these two species, in view of differences pointed out by you.

Lysimachia ?? Did not fine any match.


Yes. Pl. check comparative images in efi site. 


Please check Lysimachia congestiflora 


Lysimachia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 


Lysimachia japonica?



Though the opinions have been given by more knowledgeable persons I am still a bit skeptical about its ID though I may be wrong.
1. Filaments connate not like L. japonica.
2. Altitude not matching with L. japonica.
3. L. japonica not listed in Nepal.
As such I guess it is more matching to L. congestiflora as suggested earlier by … or some other sp. 


Apologies for a late response. A few online guides give the filaments as connate or adnate for L. japonica. Also, I have photographed this plant till 6500ft and may have seen it beyond that as well here in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. Of course I may have been misidentifying the plant here too and hope your quest sheds more light on the matter.


L. deltoidea and L. japonica same? Different webs says differently.


Catalogue of life & The Plant List Ver 1.1 based on Tropicos, say they are different.


Shall we take it as L. japonica ??


I think that was the earlier conclusion.

I did so in my post referred to by you. But for convenience here is one labeled.


Image posted in your thread was this one:
Pl. check.


True, but I meant my post Lysimachia debilis ABJUL2019/01 that you referred to. There are a few images showing the red glands on corolla, leaves and calyx.


Here I have resurfaced your old thread to see it in light of your earlier post.
May I request you to pl. review your earlier post and let us know.


Thank you … I am traveling at the moment and will be back on the 24th and can look at my earlier submissions again. But I am almost certain that all my earlier posts refer to L. debilis only as I am yet to find a different yellow Lysimachia in my area.

I filed photos of flowering plants in June. Last week (5.10.16) I found some plants in flower again and I didn’t know that these flower till this late in the autumn. I am filing detailed photos of the plants to check if I am making any mistake. The leaves are opposite, so it is likely to be L. japonica only but I am not familiar with other Lysimachia species with yellow flowers from this area. Please advise. 6 images.

Or we are not able to see the character due to small images.
May I request … to post the original image, for further examination.

On further checking, I do find the key character of Plants red to black glandular punctate or striate as per keys in Flora of China as pointed out by … in SK1960 30 May 2019

Lysimachia japonica in FOI : 8 posts by 2 authors.
Lysimachia japonica in FOI should be Lysimachia debilis Wall. as per details and discussions herein.
Pl. correct.

Thanks …, However, Plants of the World Online which treats Lysimachia debilis as a separate species, mentions the distribution as Western Himalaya, whereas our plant was found in Sikkim. However I do find our plant indistinguishable from … images of Lysimachia from Chamba.

There has been lot of confusion between these species with Lysimachia debilis Wall. being treated as syn. of Lysimachia japonica Thunb. in Catalogue of Life, Flora of Bhutan and Flora of Pakistan.
In view of the confusion, we have to decide on our species based on
Plants red to black glandular punctate or striate as per keys in Flora of China for Lysimachia debilis Wall. vis-à-vis Plants epunctate or translucent glandular punctate of Lysimachia japonica Thunb. (as again clarified in detail by Ashwini ji in SK1960 30 May 2019)
I can feel the red glands in your image in FOI.
If you post the original image, it will be further confirmed.

I attach two original images from Gangtok.
Attachments (2) – 2 Mb each.

One more image from Gangtok
Attachments (1)- 2 mb. 

Thanks, …

This again Lysimachia debilis Wall.??
One more Lysimachia.

Following the earlier discussions, yes, it shows the features. If we prefer to follow GBIF, it treats L. debilis as a synonym of L. japonica ssp japonica.
