Garugi (Kurinji) flower plant- drenched with the monsoon rain
: Even in October, Agumbe and the entire western ghats belt was drenched with the monsoon rain. No sooner we started trekking to the Barkana falls situated within the Agumbe rain forest, than it started pouring. Similar to the lantana, the Garugi (Gurugi), (Kurinji ) flower plant blooms, inundating the forest paths. But these flowers are beneficial for when in bloom (Once in 5-7 years?), they are known to attract bees in very large numbers. And there is a bumper honey yield that year. Unfortunately, the honey bees are known to die in India from a disease called fowl brood.
    As we trekked, the 15 feet wide forest path got narrowed down to a feet or two thanks to the wild vegetation. In fact, many a time we were reduced to crawling to navigate the Garugi plants in the darkness. But the upside of our adventure was to see  the rain drops prettily perched on the flowers – as if the stars had come down to earth! But be warned that there are some risks too - this is leech country and we witnessed a snake (cobra ?) -just in front of us crossing the narrow path and after reaching a safe bush top staring at us!  One does come across carnivore scat here and there...

Great trail through the Garugi forest sir. thank you
what is that shit? dropings? which animal?
I was told by the local guide, the scat could be that of a Tiger.
Obviously it is the scat of a large carnivore...
- it could be the scat of a tiger or a leopard, but large cats generally leave scratch marks around and tend to cover their scat with soil or leaves.
- it could also be the scat of a Hyena, Dhole [Wild Dog], Wolf or even a Sloth Bear.
For me it is Nilgirianthus heyneanuss -under shrubs in almost entire westernghats of karnataka -Iruppu, brahmagiri, kodachadri, jog falls, uttarakannada
in Kodachadri it is everywhere.
This is without doubt Strobilanthes lupulina

Many thanks to ... for the ID.

Thanks for sharing wonderful pictures of an uncommon (Not posted on the group) Acanthaceae member
It just prompted me to go through the key of Strobilanthes (Earlier or what BSI Flora mentions as Nilgirianthus)
Stamens are 2 in N. reticulatus. All other species have 4 stamens.
Flowers are without bracteoles in 2 sp. out of which N. heyneanus has bracts glabrous or nearly so; whereas N. lupulinus has bracts hairy. These characters must be there in your specimens though I couldn't see them clearly.
Many thanks ... for validating the ID.
Both the plants (lupulinus and heyneanus) could be close; however a point mentioned in Talbot's The Trees, Shrubs and Wood-Climbers of the Bombay Presidency: the bracts in these two plants are quite different -- is noteworthy.
In the posted plant, the bracts resemble hops, the stem and branches are woody and warty. These two aspects and ... guidance convinced me of the ID. I am not sure of the glabrous / hairy aspect.
In Flora of the Presidency of Bombay S. lupulinus is described to be without bracteoles though further describes the nature and dimensions of the bracts. I am not sure I can distinguish between bracts and bracteoles. Corolla of S. heyneanus has relatively constricted neck. In the posted plant the corolla tube does not look constricted. For reference and comparison, corolla of S. heyneanus can be seen in ... photo at Flowers of India. Nature of bracts also can be seen here.
Further validation is welcome; will stand corrected.
Thanks for further inputs. It will definitely help in exploring further when one encounters similar flowers in the field. The Karvi season is due in coming years.
