I found this herb growing about a metre in height in the open areas of dry deciduous forests of Satyamangalam hills.
Experts help to identify this species.

Anisochilus verticillatus
'Anisochilus verticillatus' is called 'Akash Tulas' 'आकाश तुळस' in Marathi.

Looks much different from images of Anisochilus adenanthus (Syn: Anisochilus verticillatus Hook.f.) of Prashant ji at

A reply from another thread:
"I dont think it is Anisochilus shoolamudianus because it possess small bracts not exceed calyx (your images carries well exerted large bracts), leaf veins not visible due to thick hairs (your images carries large leaves with prominent veins). For proper identification plant specimen requires or refer revision of Anisochilus by Somran S & Paton A, kew bulletin 64:235-257. (2009).
Probably it may be Anisochilus adenanthus (having both white & blue flowers) or a new one.
Here I am attaching the images of Anisochilus adenanthus (IMG_3582, IMG_3583) & Anisochilus shoolamudianus"
