May be male plant of Piper mullesua Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don as per posting by Nidhan ji at Piperaceae, Lauraceae and Thymelaeaceae Fortnight: Piperaceae-Piper for id from Sikkim-NS SEP 11
I am not sure … Did not see such image and herbarium anywhere.
I think male plant of Piper peepuloides is possible as per GBIF specimen.
Thank you … Does it produce fruits?
Male plant will not produce fruit.
Can it be male plant of Piper mullesua Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don as per posting by … at Piperaceae, Lauraceae and Thymelaeaceae Fortnight: Piperaceae-Piper for id from Sikkim-NS SEP 11 ?
Looks different according to leaf comparison.
No. It is a female plant of Piper thomsonii. Inflorescence of Piper mullesua have bisexual Flowers.
I could not find listing of Piper thomsonii (C.DC.) Hook.f. in Nepal, however, distribution is mentioned in POWO only. But no record of herbarium sp. in Nepal.
Sir it is a female plant and probably of P. hamiltonii
Thanks a lot, … … suggested it as a female plant of Piper thomsonii.
Any views ?
Thank you … Only POWO showing distribution in Nepal.
CoL also listed for Nepal !
Looking the length and the thickness of the of the spike and the nature of the prophyll, it may not be a P. thomsonii
Lets have some more picture with the habit, leaves and fruits.
It may not be P. hamiltonii also and could be P. khasianum too. SO better get more materials.
