Strobilanthes scaber from South Andaman- confirmation please

Persumably Strobilanthes andamensis Bor, endemic to the Andamans.

I compared the specimen with the images of isotype of Strobilanthes andamanensis at Kew and found different from it. The isotype of Strobilanthes andamanensis at Kew (K000883177) received from Forest Research Institute, Dehradun (No.9052) has been later identified as S.
Strobilanthes glandulosa (sensu Anderson & Kurz) is an illegitimate later homonym of Strobilanthes glandulosa Blume. The correct name for this Andaman species is therefore Strobilanthes andamensis Bor

We would like to reexamine the specimen from Andaman Islands. This yellow-flowered Strobilanthes is not identical with Strobilanthes glandulosus Kurz, pl examine the number of ovules per ovary locule. Is it 6 per locule?

Many thanks for this information
I couldn't find very much information about this species on the net or images for that matter
Whatever little I did hinted at blue flowers
I would really appreciate if you could give me some more information or description
Beautiful Shots ... I agree with Strobilanthes glandulosus
Correct name may be Strobilanthes glandulosa Kurz as per given efi site link.
Is it also Strobilanthes andamanensis as per determination in another thread for the Andaman plant? 

It looks like Strobilanthes andamensis - it is the only yellow-flowered Strobilanthes (Sericocalyx group) known from the Andamans.

In India there are only two other species in this complex - S. cabra from the Bengal-Bihar plains ans S. phyllostachya from extreme eastern India. Some of these have been cultivated in South India.
