Pic taken at Aambyvalley rd., Lonavala, Pune in Nov 14.
If this is the A. heyneana, then do we get in a complete white flower version?
Yes ..., we do find white-coloured flowers of Anisomeles heyneana.
 
While searching for some pictures, I came across this picture that I missed earlier.
Not very sure if it comes under Acanthaceae.
Seen at Maharashtra Nature Park.
I have only one picture.
For me this is more likely to be from Lamiaceae, may be Anisomeles..
Agreeing with ... thought; Anisomeles heyneana.
