What are species of Polygala reported from your area?



It is informed that doesn’t any Polygala Species reported from here and not mention in about this kind. Hence I have no idea about it. It is blooming in the place just points Reserve Forest Chathamattom in Google map when zoom.

Here I saw less than 50 plants, not seemed in inner wild range, I think it likes sunlight.

I guess Polygala javana DC !

Polygala javana is yellowish in colour and more than one flowers in a bunch or not clear bunch. But the said flower is whitish blue and only one flower in a bunch.

Looks different from Polygala javana

Do you have the habit image, showing the full plant ?
I tried all species in Flora of Peninsular India, but could not find a match.
To me appears close to unidentified species at Polygala species- Assam



Ofcourse, please find the attached photos.

There is any procedure for recording or giving name for new plants?  If yes, please give me full details of how it can do.

Thanks, …

I am not very much aware.
But I know that samples have to be collected and deposited in a herbarium.
Then one has to get it published by some publication giving details, as to why it is different from other known species.
… and … can give more details.
