Acanthaceae for id 290110MK2: This herb is locally distributed more in dry regions of Satyamangalam RF, at
altitude of 450 msl.
They grow up to a meter in height.
Kindly help to identify.

This is not Eranthemum roseum as the bracts are different when compared here,
https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/16... https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/83...
Please validate. 
Looking at the illustrated key of ..., with my E. pulchellum added I find E. roseum with obovate mucronate is clearly out of picture. The plant also does not seem to be E. purpurascens because bracts are much narrower,
with caudate apex.

Perhaps we may explore for some other species.
This plant, as .. pointed out, is Eranthemum capense L. of Acanthaceae family.
Key characters;
In E. capense linear (sometimes lanceolate) green bracts, long spike and viscidly gladular hairs.
In E. roseum the bracts are white with green nerves, elliptic ovate - obovate, bracts are mucronate/apiclate.
In E. purpurascens, the bracts are ovate-lanceolate long accuminate
