identification no 171111sn2:    This has been tentatively identified as Justicia sp.. Generally Justicia procumbens are pink, though I found a few white sp. on the net. Could this be Justicia procumbens or otherwise. Kindly validate. Taken at Mulshi, Pune in Sept.
White flowered forms are quite common among the population. So better consider it as a variant

Rostellularia procumbens for me too ...
But while searching came across two things (link) which might be useful to some

Plz id this herb: pa14 - 28oct2012:  Another herb from Yeoor for id. It is a very short herb upto 1 foot high only and the flowers are also quite small.
Species of Justicia, probably J. simplex.
I have labelled this species as Justicia procumbens L.. in my collection. Rostellularia procumbens Nees may be a synonym [the plant list]
This genera is a taxonomic minefield and therefore additional views are welcome.
I will add that in the field it's difficult to make out whether the calyx is 4 or 5 partite due to reasons I will not go into here.

Requesting to please provide ID of this Acanthaceae member captured near Satara, Maharashtra in October 2014.
Is this Justicia procumbens? These pics were clicked at different locations.
The photographs uploaded by ... are different species from different families which have been wrongly uploaded as Acanthaceae. I request that upload them separately so that their identification can suggested properly.
agree with ...
Apologies for the same, I was not aware that they are different.
Uploading pics that I think belong to the same plant, the other I will upload separately.

pls check J. simplex also.
Yes, It is Justicia procumbens 
Thank you ... for the feedback...
I looked at other uploads in the efi database as well and this  resembled J. procumbens
I take it that this is J. procumbens, the spikes being less than 4 cm in height.

Rostellularia difusa?
Justicia procumbens
Acanthaceae
Is Rostellularia diffusa synonym of Justicia procumbens ? or is there another species as Justicia diffusa?
efi pages on Justicia diffusa (syn: Rostellaria diffusa (Willd.) Nees) & Justicia procumbens   
Justicia procumbens and Rostellularia diffusa are two different species.
And yeah Rostellularia difusa is a synonym of Justicia diffusa. It is Justicia species for sure.

Sharing some pictures I guess is Justicia procumbens (accepted name) shot at Pashupati Forest Kathmandu Nepal today at 4400 ft.

But color of flower is rather light, so it may be different one??
I think matches with images at Justicia procumbens L.

Tiny herb seen growing wild in the grass at Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Bangalore in April.


Thanks ... for your prompt response. I will check.

Justicia sp. ??


It is some Acanthaceae member. Flowers not clear to tell
It is justicia procumbens only

I also agree with ..., for its id as Justicia procumbens

One of my similar looking post from the same location, Lalbagh, Bangalore was suggested as  Justicia micrantha by ...
Experts, kindly advise. 

Justicia micrantha Wall.  is synonym for Justicia procumbens subsp. procumbens as per catalogue of life

Many thanks for your prompt reply and also for clearing my doubts.
