Elatostema sessile J. R. & G. Forst. ??
Thank you.
Not sure if I have posted it earlier. I could not find in the listing.


I doubt if it is found in Nepal as per Catalogue of Life and POWO 


This species is E. punctatum. Nepal is type locality. A very rare species.


Catalogue of Life treats Elatostema punctatum Wedd. as a synonym of Elatostema grande (Wedd.) P.S.Green.
Is it OK?

Elatostema grande (Wedd.) P.S.Green ?
Syn : Elatostema punctatum Wedd.


Yes, appears close to images at Elatostema grande 

I didn’t pay more attention to this before since in Wang’s book (Wang, 2014), it is named as E. punctatum. I need also check the original description and type of E. grande then I can confirm whether they are same
