Baba Budangiri Karnataka
Date: 14 NOV 2016 … Altitude: ~ 1733 – 1895 m ( 5686 – 6217 ft) asl
Porpax sp. … (family: Orchidaceae)
Not seeking ID. Just for records. 

I have made a terrible mistake by considering the plant as Porpax sp. !! One of my flickr friend … alerted me with the corrected ID: Peperomia tetraphylla of Piperarceae.


is it??? Did you put wrong pics? What I see here is a Piperaceae member.


I mistook the plant totally. I got to know only when I got a comment in my flickr photostream. Yes, the plant belongs to PiperaceaePeperomia tetraphylla.


Many thanks to Dr Guido Mathieu, Peperomia taxonomist, has corrected the ID to Peperomia emarginatifolia J.Mathew in my post at iNaturalist.
I found a reference paper by Jose  Mathew,  Radhamany  P  Madhavan,  Pichan  M  Salim,  Kadakasseril  V  George.  Two  new  species  of  Peperomia Ruiz  &  Pav. (Piperaceae) from South Western Ghats, India. Species, 2018, 19, 162-166
