Plant for ID :: ¿ Debregeasia ? :: Nagla forest :: March 14, 2021: 9 images.
Nagla forest … part of Sanjay Gandhi National Park
¿ Debregeasia ? sp.
This herbaceous plant was about 1.5 m tall; it seemed to be a solo plant found along a well-trodden trail. Perhaps more individuals could be in the inner core forest.It looks to me like some member of Urticaceae, possibly some Debregeasia. The plant looks like in fruiting, unless all these structures are some insect galls, which are most likely not. The last picture shows some of them opened up. Hopefully, these pictures help in ID, at least to genus level.
Your subject line caught my attention, I have not seen Debregeasia at Nagla so far.
I had not seen such a sight until this one.
What can be the plant otherwise ?
Does not seem to match with any Debregeasia species so far in efi site.
If I get to see the plant again – hopefully in flowering / fruiting, I will update this post.
