Nonea edgeworthii A. DC., Prodr. 10: 30 1846.;
.
Pakistan to W. Himalaya and Central India: India, Pakistan, West Himalaya as per POWO;
.



Help me to identify this plant species: 4 images.

These images were sent by one of my colleagues..
I think they belong to any Buglossoides sp.
Any inputs please…


Where is this from ? Elevation and date?


There seems to be some mismatch in FoI and efi : Buglossoides tenuiflora   Buglossoides arvensis (L.) I. M. Johnst.
Syn. also mismatch I guess ! Same images found for both sp. !


You are right. … had shared it correctly as Lithospermum arvens, but due to some incorrect synonymy that I found at that time, I put it as Buglossoides tenuiflora. I should be correctly Buglossoides arvensis (L.) I.M.Johnst.


Thank you … ! But please note that same images are posted in efi for other sp. (Link )
That  also need to be corrected !


I think the date is printed on the pics.. And this herb was recorded from Haryana state…!!


I think it looks different from the two species I know which were discussed in Buglossoides tenuiflora

Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Heliotropium and Boraginaceae
It appeared close to Gastrocotyle hispida (Forsk.) Bunge, but flowers look different.

I think this is Nonea edgeworthii as per TwitterFlora of PakistanFoP illustrationGBIF– specimenPOWO.


Yes …, thanks a lot…
