Requst help in identifying a small, very hirsute herb from Meghalaya.
Location: Cherrapunjee area, Meghalaya
Altitude: about 1500m asl
Habitat: in a damp place
Habit: small herb, < 15 cm tall
Leaves: petiolate, opposite decussate. Could not see stipules. Nerves prominent below.
Seems from Rubiaceae, like any Neanotis sp.
Thanks, … Could not find any match as per comparative images at Neanotis
No idea Sir, though it appears to me to be a Rubiaceae member, as … suggested, because of its hairy (fimbriate?) growth at the throat of corolla. An investigation in line of Argostemma or ally may (or may not) yield result.
I checked Argostemma species in efi site as per details herein, but these look a bit different.
Could you identify it ?
Not yet … Boea herbacea may be a possibility, but I couldn’t access herbarium sheets or photos to match it.
I guess Boea herbacea is not matching according to net images
Yes, looks different as per GBIF specimens.
It may be Chiratia sp.
Flower shape looks different from Microchirita sp.
