Dicliptera bupleuroides ??

Appears close to Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss. as per images and details herein and as per comparative images at Dicliptera
It is Dicliptera cuneata only flowers in peduncled axillary clusters, floral bracts obovate-oblong
Thanks, ..., for the breakthrough.
Appears to match as per GBIF - Specimen  FRLHT (specimen) Plant illustrations 
 
Yercaud ... (literally, lake forest), Tamil Nadu
... near Gundur ... Date: January 24, 2018 ... Altitude: about 1,623 m (5324 feet) asl
Please validate whether Dicliptera cuneata ... a tall herb - standing about 1.5 m along a ghat road near Gundur on outskirts of Yercaud. The flower is typically of same structure and dimensions as of Peristrophe bicalyculata. The last photo shows the habitat - has mix of various plants, hiding the posted plant in its midst.
Yes it is Dicleptera cuneata  

Please help me with validating the name கருந்குருந்து karungurundhu listed in Flowers of India, OR help with this variant of the same name karunkuruntu, in native script - listed at ENVIS-FRLHT.

The name Karungurundhu may be transcribed as கருங்குருந்து (not கருந்குருந்து).
I think this will also be Dicliptera beddomei as per correction of Dicliptera cuneata posted by me and as per GBIF specimen.
Pl. confirm.
Yes, it is correct. To me it is Dilciptera cuneata only
Thanks, ..., You mean to say Dicliptera beddomei or Dilciptera cuneata ?
I am taking it as Dicliptera beddomei
It is Dicliptera cuneata only

Pl. check with images at Peristrophe roxburghiana
Does not seem to match with images of stated species as per the following:

Can it be Dicliptera cuneata Nees as per images herein ?

Thanks ..., You are correct.
I think this will also be Dicliptera beddomei as per correction of Dicliptera cuneata posted by me and as per GBIF specimen.
Pl. confirm.
I am taking it as Dicliptera beddomei as per keys provided by you, at another thread.

Family: Acanthaceae
Date- December 2012
Location- Andhra Pradesh
Habitat- Wild
Plant Habit- Herb
Height- 1.5mt.
Leaves - simple, elliptic, sub glabrous up to 5 inch long, 2.2 inch width
Inflorescence - Trichotomous
Flowers - up to 2.0 cm long, bracts 2mm long
It is not matches with Peristrophe paniculata characters like Bracteoles size, Corolla size, Leaf shape & size, Stems somewhat roundish, glabrous to subglabrous, fruit size etc. 
the flower color and shape is so lovely and delicate respectively, the foliage color is pleasant too... 
I was wondering if we have horticulture experts or practicing horticulturists among us... my question to them is: can this plant be adopted /selectively bred for home gardening?
It is collected from some undisturbed forest slopes. The hillock is protected from grazing which is comes under piligrim area. It is not at all home gardening plant. It is not matches with the characters of other Peristrophe species which were reported from India (FBI, Gamble, State Floras of AP, MH, MP, Bihar, Orissa, Assam, Rajastahn,etc, EFC & EFP. It may be a new species or new variety?. Due to lack of proper literature we were not able to fix the identity confirmation. Thanks to ... for resurfacing this taxon and also valuable comments.
I think it is Peristrophe paniculata only. But you can explore further the minute differences found by you.

My simple answer is 'yes'.
Even ... and ... think this as Peristrophe paniculata only.
I think it should be Dicliptera cuneata as per images and details herein.
I think this will also be Dicliptera beddomei as per correction of Dicliptera cuneata posted by me
Pl. confirm.
I am taking it as Dicliptera beddomei as per keys provided by you, at another thread.
