This is also a frequent herb of western Himalayas, please suggest if the identification is correct or not, because it closely resembles Justicia procumbens..
Is this Rostellularia crinita or otherwise ? These pics are from Gori valley area...
efi page on Justicia procumbens        
Rostellularia crinita Nees & Justicia micrantha Wall. are synonyms of Justicia neesii as per An Excursion Flora of Central Tamilnadu, India By K. M. Matthew (1995- Details with keys)
Pl. check Species with description & keys in Flora of Pakistan for proper identification    

ID please- Shillong- BR8- 100416 : 6 posts by 1 author. 1 image.
I am sending herewith the pictures of some plants, collected from Shillong, Meghalaya. It will greatful if these specimens get identified.
I think seems to match with images of Justicia neesii Ramamoorthy
Sir, it is most probably Justicia khasiana (Acanthaceae)
Justicia khasiana is a syn. of  Justicia mollissima (Nees) Y. F. Deng & T. F. Daniel as per Flora of China
I could not find any suitable image or illustration to verify it.
You have to match with previous herbarium specimen. I think it will match with J. mollissima. (=J. khasiana).
Thanks, ... Pl. check with herbarium of Justicia neesii & images of Justicia neesii Ramamoorthy as I could not find any herbarium image on net of J. mollissima. (=J. khasiana).
which is also found in NE India till altitudes of 1500 m (which is consistent with Shillong), apart from Western Ghats.
To me images of Justicia procumbens at efi site look different. Pl. see images of Justicia neesii Ramamoorthy at efi site.

Justicia simplex D. Don (accepted name) ?? : 9 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (10)
Location: Chobhar Height, Kathmandu , Nepal
Altitude:  4600 ft.
Date: 15 Septemberr 2016
Thanks, ... Pl. Compare with images in efi site.
Does not match with images at Justicia japonica
Looks closer to images at Justicia neesii

I guesssed Justicia simplex D. Don not the J. japonica.
J. neesii is not listed in Nepal.
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=116893
Thanks, ... Pl. click on Justicia japonica & see its synonyms.
There is a lot of confusion with different sources saying different things.
Pl. also see  Flora of Pakistan along with The Plant List Ver. 1.1
Why so much confusion? Different pages showing different accepted names.
However, I guess J. simplex, J. japonica and J. procumbens seems to be same and according to the CoL which I am following J. simplex is the accepted name.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
3rd one is different. You can see it's images in efi
Justicia japonica Thunb. 
Nepali Names : फुर्के झार Phurke Jhaar / बिसाउने झार Bisaaune Jhaar / खुर्सानी झार Khursaani Jhaar / फुली झार PhulinJhaar 

To me does not match with images at Justicia japonica
Looks closer to images at Justicia neesii
