Hypoestes triflora

Hypoestes triflora (Forssk.) Roem. & Schult., Syst. Veg. 1: 141 1817. (Syn: Hypoestes ciliata Lindau (Unresolved); Hypoestes inaequalis Lindau (Unresolved); Hypoestes phaylopsoides S. Moore; Hypoestes simensis Hochst. ex Schweinf. (Unresolved); Hypoestes wallichii Nees (Unresolved); Justicia triflora Forssk.);


Roem. & Sch. Syst. i. 88 ; leaves ovate somewhat hairy on both surfaces, flower-clusters capitellate axillary and terminal, bracts narrowly obovate subobtuse, corolla scarcely 1/2 in. Nees in DC. Prodr. xi. 506 ; T. Anders, in Journ. Linn. Soc. ix. 522. H. Wallichii, Nees in Wall. Pl. As. Rar. iii. 114. Justicia chinensis, Wall. Cat. 2466, letter E.
NEPAL ; Wallich ; Tambur River, alt. 1-3000 ft., J. D. H. SIKKIM and BHOTAN, alt. 4-7000 ft., Clarke, Griffith.—DISTRIB. Abyssinia.
Herbaceous, ramous. Leaves attaining 3.1/2 by 2 in., mostly much smaller, crenate or denticulate, sparsely hairy above, pubescent beneath ; petiole 1.1/2 in. Flower- clusters 1-5 (often 3) together, subsessile ; bracts opposite, paired, flower in one of each pair nearly always 0 or much reduced ; bracteoles 1/4-1/3 in., linear-lanceolate, nearly as long as the bracts. Calyx 1/8 in. Corolla pink or white. Capsule 1/3 in., nearly glabrous. Seeds verrucose.—The placentae tend to rise elastically, and the inflorescence also draws this plant very close to Dicliptera.

This plant was found growing wild along with other chickweeds at Ward lake areaShillong.
Looks like some Dicliptera sp.?
Family: Acanthaceae
Date/Time: 13th Nov./ 01:30PM
Location: Ward lake premises, Shillong, Meghalaya.
Habitat: Wild
Plant habit: Herb
Height: 50 to 60cm,
Leaves ovate, distantly toothed margin, leaves almost sessile, 

Dicliptera species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)
Does look like Dicliptera, but inflorescence is very strange, have some similarity with D. chinensis (L.) Juss., but have differences too!
Any Dicliptera bupleuroides ?  See the link    
The foliage is not clear in the photographs.
see Peristrophe sp. also.
Any chance of Hypoestes triflora (Forssk.) Roem. & Schult.
This is Hypoestes triflora (Frossk.) Roem. & Schult. to me.

Peristrophe, Dicliptera, Hypoestes !!!
https://www.jstor.org/stable/20443321?read-now=1&refreqid=excelsior%3A02e3d79e9ffc9cc7a9acd50aa7bdd49d&seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents  
Is ID doubtful ... ?
No, ... It is not the ID. 
It is the latest advances in taxonomy, we have to keep pace with. 
Within last 5 years what used to be Peristrophe, changed to Dicliptera. And Hypoestes differs from Dicliptera in Anther structure only, I read today in the link I quoted... which I think may not be appreciable without a magnifying glass. What a common man wd do in such a fast moving world.
