Scientists have discovered two new species of pipeworts, a type of wetland plant, in areas along the Western Ghats in Maharashtra and Karnataka.

Scientists from Agharkar Research Institute (ARI) claim that the species display different floral characters than previously known species

The species found in Maharashtra has been named Eriocaulon parvicephalum and the Karnataka species is being called Eriocaulon karaavalense.

Researchers claim that figuring out the species within the wild is a problem, primarily on account of their tiny dimension. Its tiny seeds and flowers make the identification of the species tough.
