Dicliptera chinensis

Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss., Ann. Mus. Hist. Nat. 9: 268 1807. (Syn: Diapedium chinense (Juss.) K.D.Koenig; Dicliptera roxburghiana Nees; Justicia chinensis L.;                            Dicliptera burmanni Nees);
 

Common name: Chinese Foldwing
 
Herb differentiated by leaf ovate-elliptic, abaxially puberulent along veins, base decurrent onto petiole, apex shortly acuminate to acute; floweres in 1-4 flowered cymules, with 3-4 cymules per cyme, on 2-5 mm peduncles from upper leaf axils, bracts subulate to linear to oblanceolate to obovate, 3-7.5 × 0.3-1 mm; outer bracteoles elliptic to obovate, 5-13 × 3-8 mm, unequal, abaxially puberulent, 3-veined,; inner bracteoles linear, ca. 5 mm, abaxially hirsute, apex acuminate. Pedicel 0.5-3 mm, puberulent. Calyx ca. 5 mm; lobes linear, equal, margin hirsute, apex acuminate. Corolla pale purple, 1-1.2 cm, lip in lower position ovate, ca. 5 × 3 mm, apex entire; lip in upper position oblong, ca. 4 × 1.5 mm. filaments ca. 4 mm, style ca. 1.4 cm. Capsule broadly ellipsoid, ca. 6 mm. Seeds 2 mm.

(i) bracts obovate or cuneate, elliptic, apiculate, not acuminate = D. roxburghiana Nees (D. chinensis)
(ii) bracts linear or linear-oblong, with nearly parallel margins, acuminate-cuspidate = var. bupleuroides (D. bupleuroides)

Flora of British India recognises two taxa: D. roxburghiana Nees growing in plains on N. India from Punjab to Assam (it has elliptic acute leaves; bracts elliptic or obovate, apiculate not acuminate (less than twice as long as broad-eFl China) and D. roxburghiana var. bupleuroides growing in hills from 1000-6000 ft. (which is now treated as distinct species D. bupleuroides; leaves ovate or elliptic acute or acuminate; bracts linear or linear-oblong nearly parallel sided and acuminate-cuspidate at tip)
 
Pakistan Flora does not list D. roxburghiana and treats D. roxburgiana auct (non Nees); T. Anders as synonym of D. bupleuroides, in which flowers are supposed to be 12-15 mm long, lists flowers shorter than 5 mm in D. verticillata which also has linear-lanceolate bracts.
 
Flora of China luckily includes both the species D. bupleuroides (corolla 5 mm long) and D. chinensis (L.) Juss. (with D. roxburghiana Nees as synonym). Both are reported to be growing in India, D. bupleuroides according to Useful Plants of India, CSIR known as Bouna in Simla and D. Roxburhiana as Kirch or Somni in Punjab.

It seems to be Dicliptera roxburghii (Acanthaceae).

ID request for flowering plant from Eastern Himalaya: Would appreciate ID on this, please. It is a small straggling shrub, mostly on shady forest floors and roadside mud banks, flowering now. Photographed in my garden in Kalimpong, 1200mtr above msl, District Darjeeling, Eastern Himalaya .
Dicliptera roxburghiana, now considered as synonym of D. chinensis

Dicliptera chinensis from Kud J & K Pl. validate: Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss., Ann. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. 9: 268. 1807.
syn: D. roxburghiana Nees.
The plant was photographed from Kud J & K. Looks clearly different from the other plant in its larger darker coloured flowers, leaves hairy along veins below, bracts broader and flowers mostly in upper parts, and more significantly much longer style.
The species according to Flora of China is differentiated by leaf ovate-elliptic, abaxially puberulent along veins, base decurrent onto petiole, apex shortly acuminate to acute; floweres in 1-4 flowered cymules, with 3-4 cymules per cyme, on 2-5 mm peduncles from upper leaf axils, bracts subulate to linear to oblanceolate to obovate, 3-7.5 × 0.3-1 mm; outer bracteoles elliptic to obovate, 5-13 × 3-8 mm, unequal, abaxially puberulent, 3-veined,; inner bracteoles linear, ca. 5 mm, abaxially hirsute, apex acuminate. Pedicel 0.5-3 mm, puberulent. Calyx ca. 5 mm; lobes linear, equal, margin hirsute, apex acuminate. Corolla pale purple, 1-1.2 cm, lip in lower position ovate, ca. 5 × 3 mm, apex entire; lip in upper position oblong, ca. 4 × 1.5 mm. filaments ca. 4 mm, style ca. 1.4 cm. Capsule broadly ellipsoid, ca. 6 mm. Seeds 2 mm.
 
IDENTIFICATION OF WILD FLOWER: Could your group of experts please help identify and describe this wild flower i photographed in the foothills of chandigarh. These flowers were found growing on the banks of a wheat field..
I am writing about these flowers in the newspaper and would require your expertise.
... it is I suppose Dicliptera bupleuroides Nees
In Peristrophe paniculate (now correctly known as Dicliptera paniculata) the inflorescence is much longer and broader on long stalks and petals much narrower.

Since the inflorescence of this plant is axillary clusters and not panicles, this may not be P. paniculata.
Yes I agree with ... and ... as this plant is Dicliptera bupleuroides of Acanthaceae family
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=242421981
Perhaps a caution is needed in light of diverse treatment in eFlora of Pakistan and eFlora of China.
Flora of British India recognises two taxa: D. roxburghiana Nees growing in plains on N. India from Punjab to Assam (it has elliptic acute leaves; bracts elliptic or obovate, apiculate not acuminate (less than twice as long as broad-eFl China) and D. roxburghiana var. bupleuroides growing in hills from 1000-6000 ft. (which is now treated as distinct species D. bupleuroides; leaves ovate or elliptic acute or acuminate; bracts linear or linear-oblong nearly parallel sided and acuminate-cuspidate at tip)
Pakistan Flora does not list D. roxburghiana and treats D. roxburgiana auct (non Nees); T. Anders as synonym of D. bupleuroides, in which flowers are supposed to be 12-15 mm long, lists flowers shorter than 5 mm in D. verticillata which also has linear-lanceolate bracts.
Flora of China luckily includes both the species D. bupleuroides (corolla 5 mm long) and D. chinensis (L.) Juss. (with D. roxburghiana Nees as synonym). Both are reported to be growing in India, D. bupleuroides according to Useful Plants of India, CSIR known as Bouna in Simla and D. Roxburhiana as Kirch or Somni in Punjab.
Luckily ... not following the posting guidelines has been blessing in disguise, because after downloading I could enlarge the photograph and focus on bracteoles, they are clearly broader and nearly rounded at apex nearly obovate with apiculate apex, suggesting that species could be D. chinensis, that matches with distribution in FBI.
I am attaching the cropped photograph

Requesting to please provide ID of this Dicliptera at different places in Manali and Mandi , HP in October 2014.
Is this Dicliptera chinensis?
(i) bracts obovate or cuneate, elliptic, apiculate, not acuminate = D. roxburghiana Nees (D. chinensis)
(ii) bracts linear or linear-oblong, with nearly parallel margins, acuminate-cuspidate = var. bupleuroides (D. bupleuroides)
The key above is from "Bengal Plants" 
The plant resembles Dicliptera chinensis

¿ Dicliptera / Peristrophe ?
Not sure whether Dicliptera OR Peristrophe, perhaps Dicliptera. Hopefully, the photos help in knowing genus.

at Shimla on (same day) May 31, 2008  
I hope Dicliptera sinensis.
Thank you very much ... for the possible ID.

Attached are pictures of Dicliptera chinensis captured at Dharamshala, Mandia nd Manali in HP in October 2014.
Requested to validate the ID.

Acanthaceae sp for ID from Chakrata Kalsi Road, wild about 1-1.5 ft high
My guess Peristrophe sp may be roxburghiana 
Seems to match with D. roxburghiana Nees [synonym of Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss.] images.

Dicliptera bupleuroides ABMAY01/09 : 4 posts by 2 authors.
I have been lazy in identifying this correctly in the past. New photos and a careful look suggests Roxburgh’s Foldwing. Please advise.
Dicliptera bupleuroidesRoxburgh’s Foldwing
Above Mcleodganj, Dharamshala, HP
1800m
11 May 2016
(i) bracts obovate or cuneate, elliptic, apiculate, not acuminate = D. roxburghiana Nees (D. chinensis)
(ii) bracts linear or linear-oblong, with nearly parallel margins, acuminate-cuspidate = var. bupleuroides (D. bupleuroides)
The key above is from "Bengal Plants" 
Should it be Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss. (syn: Dicliptera roxburghiana Nees) as per the above keys ?
Thank you ... for correcting me. The bracts in my sample are indeed obovate and end abruptly in points rather then tapering into them. It is very likely D. chinensis.

Dicliptera sp.
Pl. check with comparative images at Dicliptera
From comparative images at Dicliptera, it appears close to Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss.
