Under each family key to the genera followed by the genus with its authority, key to the species followed by species enumeration is given. The enumeration of species includes the complete citation according to ICBN, basionym, synonyms, followed by brief description, distribution in the State, flowering and fruiting period, vernacular name and specimens examined.
