Identification: i have collected the species from Ranpur, Nayagarh district of Orissa. Please help me in identification
Place of collection: Ranpur
Altitude: 400 m above msl

Habit: Herb,
Flower solitary

    again i had sighted the species in the same place and i measured some of the characters.
    Field notes: Undershrub, leaves elliptic (up to 15 cm long), acuminate, flowers white, solitary, capsules and seeds were not visible during the time of collection 
  Can it be Pseudoeranthemum malabaricum, Syn: Eranthemum malabaricum ? Please confirm.
    ... to me it does look like Pseuderanthemum malabaricum ... (.. please mind the typo : pesudo ... must be pseud)
thanks for the identification, but i could not see the red dots on corolla. I think my specimen is lacking that
character. Please validate.
... frankly, am at a loss at commenting on the presence / absence of dots ... not sure of the description put by the author. In many identities, (the dots,) the colour of flower in general varies for many reasons, yet the plant is considered to belong to particular species.
   Please let us wait for comments on this point, as well as validation of your plant being Pseuderanthemum malabaricum. We may get to know of any other close species.
