Frankly speaking it was of that color only and at once I thought that its a different species all together. So I was even skeptic in sharing with wrong id. But while reading the protologue I realised that it is supposed to be very pale violet only (dilute violaceus) which to me is same as the colours of the petals in the pic. May be you have seen some more colour variants. Do share pics if possible.
Secondly, thanks a lot for the elaborate description.
Thirdly, you have mentioned "Type probably from India". You are absolutely right because according to the protologue the type should be from Cochin only.
I had just now shared my photographs of this sp. from  Mizoram in a seperate link. Do have a look... efi thread
Doesn't Cochinchinae refer to Vietnam  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cochinchina) ? So I don't think the type must be from India (Cochin).

 
Commelinales and Zingiberales Week :: Commelinaceae :: Floscopa scandens- PKA1:  to me both looks the same, just that yours are a bit darker than mine. May be because my plant was growing in very shady area below bamboos.

Growing by the side of a stream
Agumbe, Karnataka

Beautiful and complete upload ...
Thank you sir. It was an interesting find for me. There was one whole spot of these growing next to a stream and some had taken root even inside the stream.

Attaching three images of a small plant which grew on a piece of land which remained water logged for few months.
Will you please identify the plant ?

Floscopa scandens Lour.
Indeed a beautiful motif with a lovey message.
yes, Floscopa scandens. sometimes springs up in urban areas' muddy places too. I always think someone threw away their aquarium plants
commonly called Green mini bamboo sells fo 50 inr.... easy to throw away I think for the aquarium keepers
TRIBUTE TO FLOSCOPA SCANDENS : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)
For me natural world is a reservoir of shapes, colours, fragrance. At times I use images of flowers, leaves  of plants, wings of butterflies and birds to arrange them in a particular fashion (I call them Aplpana. You can call it Rangoli). I use images of setting sun at times for this purpose. Yesterday I uploaded image of a flowering plant and ... identified the plant as Floscopa scandens. To day I used image of this flower to make the background of an ALPANA. and liked it. If I forget about the name and other details of this plant, this beauty will always remind me this wonderful creation of nature. Uploading the same. There are other participants in the pattern. You may like to focus at the background.
