I recorded this dense rosette of spine tipped plant in Goa University campus, Goa.
Spines were sharp and I was not able to see internal details of flowers to decide whether it is Scrophulariaceae or Acanthaceae.
Moreover I am completely ignorant of flora of this area.
Is it Lepidagathis mitis (Acanthaceae)?
L.lutea
Thank you ... I am taking it as Lepidagathis lutea Dalzell (Acanthaceae).
Indian literature indicate that it is distributed in NW Ghats (Maharashtra) and Rajasthan.
