This is Strobilanthes glomeratus (Nees) T. Anderson. Nice to see this - I haven't seen a photo before. I would be grateful for any details of exact habitat, population size etc. Were there lots of plants flowering?

Strobilanthes sp from Cherapunjee-PKA4 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)
Seen this Strobilanthes sp at Cherapunjee forest. Requesting ID..

I think this is probably Strobilanthes capitata although the flower head is somewhat atypical.
By the way it would be helpful to ask correspondents to take photos showing the whole infloresence, i.e. the whole shoot down to and including the uppermost pair of leaves which are not bearing flowers.
I have been checking some Strobilanthes identifications and think I wrongly identified the following  as Strobilanthes capitata:
Strobilanthes sp. at Cherupunjee PKA4
This should be Strobilanthes glomerata (Nees) T.Anderson
I hope you can find this and make the necessary correction.
