    Hi ...

    I am not a botanist; merely an enthusiatic photographer.

    I am not able to find difference between Eranthemum roseum vs. Eranthemum pulchellum.

    I have few pictures of particular species found at National Park near Mumbai, India ... I have uploaded them at:

    3. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/318387839/

    Though I find on the internet, many instances of E. pulchellum AND it quite looks like what I have in my pictures, I found E. roseum at http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Dasmuli.html

    Please clear my doubt. Thank you very much in advance.

    I haven't been able to find much information on E. roseum. The books we have at UBC unfortunately don't cover much of India - only Sikkim.

    The flora I have contains Eranthemum pulchellum, and from what I can tell, the photos match the description for this plant - but without knowing how the two species compare, I can't affirm anything.
