I.C. Hedge

  • Elsholtzia incisa Benth.
  • Hyptis stachyodes Link

    Herb up to 1.2 m. Stems rather slender, much branched, quadrangular, with eglandular white retrorse hairs. Leaves broadly ovate, c. 3 x 2 cm, coarsely crenate to serrate, cuneate, acute, with short eglandular hairs, densely gland-dotted on abaxial surface. Petiole up to 3 cm. Inflorescence of erect lateral and terminal slender spikes, up to 5 x 0.4 cm, forming panicles; verticillasters contiguous or separate; indumentum as on stem. Bracts linear subulate, 1-2 mm. Calyx. c. 1 mm in flower, urceolate; teeth narrow triangular. Corolla white, 1.5-2 mm. Anthers included. Nutlets oblong.

    Type: No specimen or country of origin indicated.

    The inclusion of this species is based on the record from "Kashmir" in Flora British India (l.c.). No specimens from our area have been seen and its presence (the species has an overall distribution similar to Elsholtzia fruticosa) must be considered rather doubtful. The species does occur at Chamba, Himachal Pradesh in adjacent NW India.
