Please id this plant. Photographed near Keeriparai (western ghats region) of Kanyakumari dist. two days ago (26.1.09). The location is a rubber plantation, where this plant was growing along with several other shrubs of the genus Solanum. The rubber plantation looked as if it had been temporarily abandoned as there was no tapping and plenty of Eupatorium, grasses etc. were seen growing. Some of these rubber trees (Havea brasiliensis) were in fact fruiting. this was a first for me, seeing rubber trees fruit.
This is a Verbenaceae member and looks more like some Clerodendrum sp.
... could it be ¿ Clerodendrum trichotomum ?
commonly known as: Harlequin glory bower, Japanese clerodendrum, peanut butter shrub
Thanks, ....

It appears like Clerodendrum trichotomum after going through the pictures.

Observed in Fergusson college campus Pune
Clerodendrum trichotomum or C.indicum?
efi pages on Clerodendrum trichotomum & Clerodendrum indicum
Plant in images is Clerodendrum trichotomum Thunb. Because in C. indicum leaves always in whorls of 3-5, and in images leaves are opposite not whorled.
How do you differentiate with Clerodendrum infortunatum L.?
 
How come we have the species as back as in 2009 when the species has been reported for the first time in India in 2014 ?
How come the species finds its way to Maharashtra within six months of the publication of the paper?
Thanks, ... May be it was already there, but only published in 2014.
In Maharastra, it was reported as a cultivated plant.
Or you mean to say/ point out something else.
Quite possible Sir, but the linked document would give clear idea of what C. trichotomum is!

Image is not clear.
Pl. check 

Volkameria inermis L. syn Clerodendrum inerme
Does not matches with images at Volkameria inermis L.
Pl. check with images at Clerodendrum trichotomum Thunb. as per comparative images at Clerodendrum
To me appears close.
