The species of Corchorus presented here will be an addition to the genus in EFI, if it is what I think it is. Please examine the images and opine about it .
It was recorded in Ocober ’17 in Surat , GJ (roadside , waterlogged in monsoon)
Such a tiny flower !!!!
Thanks … I too strongly think it to be Corchorus fascicularis. The fruits seem sufficiently distinctive.
I hope too, you’re right …
Thanks, … for id.
Species with description & keys in Flora of Pakistan and illustrations herein, also lead me to this species.
Please help identify this herb, branches spreading from base to all directions, found in wild at Dhavlas, Maharashtra.
may be Corchorus olitorius
Pls give sizes of fruits and leaves so that sp of Corchorus can be IDd.
Please follow the plant for pictures of flowers, this seems C. tridens.
This also appears to be Corchorus fascicularis as per FOP illustration and keys in Flora of Pakistan
