Does not seem to match with any species at comparative images in efi at Strobilanthes
I am fairly sure this is Strobilanthes khasyana (Nees) T. Anderson - note only 2 fertile stamens.
This is the first record of this species since 1886 and is thus very interesting. Could you ask ... if he could send any details of exact habitat, population size, height of plant etc. I would be very interested to see additional photos if he has them, even if not of such good quality.
Same Strobilanthes khasyana. Not common. Altitude : about 1,400 - 1,500 m. Attachments (2)

Thanks - the second photo is very helpful as it shows the distinctive axillary spikes of this species. I feel sure this is the long-lost Strobilanthes khasyana. Any details od population size???
