The effort of seaching out herbal medicinal plants for photoworks to accompany the botanical texts and the folkloric info has led to an increasing accumulation of images that have failed to find a descriptive botanical match. Often, the problem arises from the confusing similarity of common names by plants of different species or the multiplicity of common names, some plants having more than 30 variations in common names. But the search is hardly ever fruitless, invariably yielding serendipitous finds in the every changing rural flora with its dry and rainy seasonal minuet of growths.

Below, one of those plants that escapes identification. Email your info of common or scientific name or folkloric usage. Thanks.
