Dicliptera

Placentae rising elastically from the base of the capsule ----------- Dicliptera
Placentae not rising elastically from the base of the capsule ----- Peristrophe 
 
These two taxa can also be distinguished based on the following simple morphological key:
# Cymes capitate; bracts spathulate........... Dicliptera (for D. cuneata)
# Cymes divaricate; bracts linear................ Peristrophe (for P. paniculata)

For possible id confirmation. Thanks a lot.
Found at Gundupalli near Tedlam/Chintalapudi on Eastern Ghats hillside in Feb.2010.
Height of plant around 50 cm, flowers 1cm width

Peristrophe sp. most probably paniculata.
...  Dicliptera and Peristrophe confuse me.
Yes sir, for me too it has been confusing ...

Herb ID request - RK99 - 15-Jan-2013:
Requesting identification of this herb from Tungareshwer. This plant is very short, maybe around 6 inches tall and looking at the flowers I thought it is Peristrophe paniculata as per this thread
I am confused because i was browsing the archives and I am unable to tell the differences bet. Peristrophe and Dicliptera. Request the experts to please throw some light on this.
... looks like the stinking foldwing, Dicliptera foetida syn. D. zeylanica (family: Acanthaceae).
Thanks again …

I have labelled the posted plant as Dicliptera foetida; would like to take the opportunity of getting it validated during this fortnight.

Kanakeshwar forest  near Alibag
Date: December 25, 2019 ... Altitude range: about 200 ft (60 m) to 1200 ft (365 m) asl
Dicliptera foetida  (Forssk.) Blatt.

I cant thank you enough. This is a very timely help, these beautiful images !!! 
Dicliptera species with axillary inflorescences are giving grief ....since this one has relatively bigger flower and inflorescence is not very compact, bracts are bigger too, this species is now easier to recognise and is ruled out as a possible id for my specimens which may be a single taxon or two, I do not know. 
My pleasure … I think this one is common among the wild species in Western Ghats.
Please do post your Dicliptera spp.
