2) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) T. Anders.
3) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) Wall. ex T. Anders
4) Justicia wynaadensis B.Heyne is an unresolved name at
http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2331014

Have not thoroughly combed internet for any other instance(s) of J. wynaadensis 
Sure will sound funny, but the trouble is how and what to query because of no knowledge !!
Gazing (and attempting) to understand these 4 instances did not really help.
Intention is to know which among this names is well known.


Its very simple, check the name where it first validly published
Would like to know if
1) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) Heyne ex T.And.
2) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) T. Anders.
3) Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) Wall. ex T. Anders
refer to same species, and is different from
4) Justicia wynaadensis B.Heyne

Putting response received from ... at Indian Flora (Facebook Group) :
I think all the four are the same. The original name (basionym) was Adhatoda wynaadensis proposed by Nees. I think B.Heyne suggested a new combination with Justicia as genus. This was later explained and published by T. Anderson. I think you should find out T. Anderson's publication of this species, which would give the details of the history of the nomenclature. Some authors considered this plant as Justicia latifolia Vahl and so I think the use of Wall for Wallich is by mistake. But now that J.w is a different species from J.l, the name of Vahl is not relevant. So, for anyone considering Justicia wynadensis a valid species and correct nomenclature, the citation should be Justicia wynaadensis (Nees) B.Heyne ex T.Anderson - You can always abbrieviate the authors'names by removing the initials or further by shortening the name with a dot next to it like And. or Ander. So, finally it means Justicia wynaadensis, a species originally described by Nees with the present nomenclature suggested by B. Heyne and validly published by T. Anderson.

Justicia wynaadensis, but need to know more about plant habit, leaves to be sure.
Earlier name for J. wynaadensis is Justicia latifolia Vahl. and its a subfruticose plant,, stem green in colour. cant be sure about the identity, as photo do not give every details, so please check in Herbarium.

Seen this small climbing herb with slender stem in Chikmagalur region (Karnataka).
Looks like some Justicia sp.
Could this be Justicia wynaadensis??
