Excellent work, …! Thanks for sharing some of the not-so-common varieties/forms of Allmania.
I only collected var. dichotoma, var. nodiflora, and A. longipedunculata from Tamil Nadu.

Thanks again for sharing the pictures.

Wonderful work, …

Thank you, …,

My ambition is to record all our native plants with photographs, since they are most useful and easy tools to know our  wealth; this a small step in this journey, UGC India has sanctioned me a project for digitalising the florstic resources of Velugonda hills  of E.ghats; the native place of Pterocarpus santalinus, Boswellia ovalifoliolata, Decalepis hamiltonii, etc., I am recording almost all parts of a plant in photographs. I am really astonished sometimes, and enjoying the work. JSGamble is my role-model.

Thanks, …, Best wishes in your wonderful journey!!!
