Identification of Plant- Malvaceae : 13 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)

Please help me to identify the attached plant belongs to the Family Malvaceae

Observed at Palladam, Tirupur Dist, Tamilnadu on 26-07-15


It seems to be Hibiscus vitifolius L.


In H.vitifolius– Flowers pendulous and face downwards and leave lobed looks like Grapes leaves. Flower attached for verification.

Yes, this (DSC_0588_web.jpg) one vitifolius.

How many stigmas are there in the pics (3 pics) in the initiating thread? Please provide more detail on habit, leaf-flower size. And please upload larger pictures in your next uploads so that we can take a better view to reach a probable id.

This is (the original id intended) most likely Pavonia glechomifolia (A. Rich.) Garcke ex Schewin. f.


Your suggestions are noted for due compliance.


It would be very kind of you, thereby enabling the group adding one more taxon to its database. Meanwhile for your perusal –

I attach herewith the specimens with high resolution for your reference

Thank you very much.

The 2nd & 3rd pics suggest there are more than 5 capitate stigmas. ID is very probable, check KEW herb. from outside India –

The species is close to P. procumbens (ref. BSI), and the name glechomifolia itself suggests it is the species.

However, we should wait for professionals’ comments.


Thank you very much. And I wonder how the specimen 3 & 4 are extracted. Really wonderful


Pavonia procumbens recorded by me. Attachments (1)


Thanks, …

Pavonia glechomifolia (A. Rich.) Garcke ex Schewin. f. (Flora of India Volume 3- 1993) is a synonym of Pavonia procumbens (Wight & Arn.) Walp. as per The Plant List Ver. 1.1- (Both are syn. of Pavonia burchellii (DC.) R.A.Dyer as per Malvaceae of Southern Peninsular India: A Taxonomic Monograph By V. V. Sivarajan, A. K. Pradeep (1996))


 

There is an endnote in BSI, …, that reads – “Notes. Most botanists consider this species to be conspecific with Pavonia procumbens (Wight & Arn.) Walp., but can be readily distinguished from it by purple coloured stem, longer epicalyx segments, yellow corolla with dark purple centre and echinate mericarps.”

Now, it’s your choice! However, TPL thinks P. burchellii is different taxon.


Naming of Pavonia procumbens : 1 post by 1 author.
I wish to add (For the sake of information) that BSI in its website given it as Pavonia procumbens. Ref; http://efloraindia.nic.in/efloraindia/taxonList.action?id=2807&type=4
The Plant list also given it as accepted name

 


 

Thanks, … BSI flora was prepared in 1990, while the monograph work was done in 1996 (which is much superior).


 

Pl. go through Pavonia (‎‎‎Malvaceae) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.

 


As per Catalogue of life(2017) Pavonia burchellii (DC.) R.A.Dyer, Bull. Misc. Inform. Kew 1932: is not an Indian species; the specimen in the efi site is Pavonia procumbens only as per Catalogue of life; the reference you have cited dates back 1996; why not it be reconsidered. 


Thanks, …

I have based my decision based on Monograph of South Indian species made in 1996, a highly appreciable document. As Catalogue of Life does not give any references, we have to dig in further, if we have to change the decision in the matter. 


Under the species page of Pavonia on th efi website, there seems to be two species clubbed under the name Pavonia burchelli. The one with white corolla and purple throat is likely to be a different species. Perhaps a species of Hibiscus?

Also the names P. burchellii and P. procumbens seem to be synonyms according to Shashidharan’s Flowering Plants of Kerala


Thanks, …

Clicked in Rao Jodha park, Jodhpur, September 4th


I think looks somewhat different from images at Herissantia crispa

And also no distribution in the posted area/ state.

It is Pavonia prostrata


Pavonia procumbens or Pavonia burchelli


Thanks, … Yes, appears close to Pavonia procumbens (Wight ex Wight & Arn.) Walp. as per images and details herein.

Malvaceae plant seen growing wild in the first week of July.

Not sure whether it is the same Species posted earlier from Kenya as they were seen in different locations.


Perhaps, it is Abutilon palmeri


Thanks for suggested id. Does look like Abutilon Species. Hope to get it verified.


Pavonia procumbens
