Strobilanthes atropurpureus ??
Sharing some pictures for identification validation shot at Kakani, Nepal on 28 July 2016 at 6000 ft.
Thanks, ... On checking comparative images at Strobilanthes, does not seem to match with any of the species.
Sepals look different.
This is Strobilanthes lamiifolia (Nees) T. Anderson. I don't think you have sent me a photo of this before. Locally common in dry pine forest in Metal. Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh.
Thanks, ... Yes, first time in efi.

strobilanthes? : 5 posts by 3 authors. 2 images.
If someone can help me with the species name?
I looked at Strobilanthes, but they have different flowerheads
Mid-east Nepal; 2200m
29/10
along a footpath  
Strobilanthes tomentosa (Nees) J.R.I.Wood
Please acknowledge if the ID is correct !
I think this is probably Strobilanthes lamiifolia. It is certainly not typical of the plant but it does have congested flower heads.
