24042011GS1 Lamiaceae for ID from Morni hillsgrowing on rocky ground around Tikkar tal lake in Morni. The plant around 1 m tall is tufted plant with several branches from base; leaves opposite, ovate-elliptic 2-3 cm long with crenate margin. Flowers about 1 cm long, about 5 mm across, mauve coloured in few-flowered axillary clusters. 
- I think ... also have Nepeta hindostana in their mind for this plant. I was present at the locality of taking this photograph. I agree with .., this can be Nepeta hindostana.
- Adding original description from the Botany of Bihar and Orissa Nepeta hindostana (B.Heyne ex Roth) Haines, Bot. Bihar Orissa 4: 744 (1922).
- I remember it now. When .. first showed me this plant, I immediately said it is I think Nepeta  hindostana. Then perhaps I forgot about it while processing the photographs.

Small herb seen on the edge of a field. growing close to the ground.
with very small flowers about 6 to 8 mm.
second week of march
a few kilometers from parwanoo in the foothills of himachal pradesh
would very much appreciate an id
This can be Isodon rugosus...Lamiaceae
I checked on Isodon rugosus, but it looks different to me

This looks to me like Nepeta hindostana and its flowering times also matches
Many thanks for the id

Plant for ID 16/01/2012 SMP 2:  I observed this plant on the walls of Fort Purandar as well as Fort Sinhagad Near Pune Maharashtra. Dec 2011.
A herb. Total height of the plant around 1 foot.
Leaves Elliptic ovate to rhomboid. simple with dentate margin wooly-tomentose.
Flowers in axillary and terminal inflorescence agin very hairy.
Flowers violet and white, petals with design. Size 2-3 mm.

This looks like some Lamiaceae member. Check for Nepeta sp.
fort purandhar seems prolific in hosting good plants!!! :) what else is there?
nice flower colr, I dont know what it is... nepeta? no... is it?
Lamiaceae for sure and Nepeta, as suggested by ..., is a possible choice, I guess.
Please try with http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=122138
Could it be Nepeta hindostana?

Thanks for the ID
It is indeed Nepeta hindostana. ... has also posted similar plant from Morni area.
I don't know the habitat of that plant.
Two grossly distinct habitats are mentioned for this species in Flowers of Sahyadri.
Occasional in sandy river and stream beds........
On stone walls of hill forts in Pune........
I found this species on stone walls of Purandar as well as Sinhagad Fort.
Just wondering how come different habitats.
Any possibility that sandy soil was taken up from river beds for construction of stone walls of forts during Shivaji Maharaj era and some seeds might have gone there ????

Yes it is. Thanks for sharing 
Beautiful pics and instant identification. Nepeta are always difficult for me.
A little correction in name- it is "hindostana" in specific epithet.

Requesting to please provide ID of this Lamiaceae member captured in the Kangra fort near Dharamshala, HP in October 2014.
it looks to me a species of Nepeta 
This would be Nepeta but I am not sure of the species, could be erecta, would like to have experts guiding us on this. (I am not a botany/ taxonomy guy but a photographer documenting wild flowers especially since the last 10 yrs, extensively covered the Valley of Flowers and adjoining ranges.). 
Hope you all will understand.
Probably Nepeta hindostana ...
 
Attached are pictures of Nepeta hindostana captured at Kangra Fort mear Dharamshala in October 2014.
Was posted on the forum earlier and identified.

 
Family: Lamiaceae

Are there any closely related/similar species for this Nepeta

25102011-BS-3 Small lamiaceae herb for id from TDL Herbal Park Yamunanagar:  Small lamiaceae herb for id from TDL Herbal Park Yamunanagar (280 mts)
Wild about 25-30 inch high, leaves simple and opposite, flower about 6-8 mm
pls id
Looks like Hyptis suovolens
Thanks ... for confirmation
some time we need more characters to approach to the species
even am not able to see the no. of perfect stamens in flower 2 or 4
closeup piece of calyx
Does not look like Hyptis suaveolens as per images herein.
Pl check for Hyptis mutabilis also. But not sure. 

Nepeta hindostana


Another member of Lamiaceae for ID photographed along Dakpathar Kalsi road near Kalsi. Please help in ID.
Seems some species of Nepeta.
Thanks ... Perhaps Nepeta leucophylla, another of my upload on Flowers of India
It does not matches with images at Nepeta ciliaris Benth. (syn: Nepeta leucophylla Benth.)

Yes it is N. hindostana only. Thanks ...

This is again Nepeta, from Morni Hills..
Please suggest the species.. Nepeta hindostana ?

efi page on Nepeta hindostana


To me also appear close to images at Nepeta hindostana (B.Heyne ex Roth) Haines

This taxon is really tough to distinguish at species level and careful examination of specimens is required...
I have recorded some pictures from Morni Hills, they all look alike, and quite possibly I may have mingled them.. still on the basis of slight differences I will post them separately..
If possible on the basis of these pics, please suggest id of this Nepeta recorded from Morni Hills..
Nepeta species so far in efi
After perusing comparative images at Nepeta‎, I can not think of any other species other than Nepeta hindostana (B.Heyne ex Roth) Haines
Yes ... thanks..!!
 
For id from Morni, may be a repeat upload..
Nepeta species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 
After perusing comparative images at Nepeta‎, I can not think of any other species other than Nepeta hindostana (B.Heyne ex Roth) Haines

Thanks a lot ...
This is Nepeta hindostana..

I'd requested for this plant from Morena, M.P
Date : 13 November 19

Nepeta sp. I guess. Elevation ?
Thanks Sir elevation is about 180 MTR.

Nepeta cataria L. ?? Please cross verify !  
Sir looks closer to Nepeta hindostana please guide.

I was thinking about that but could not establish the elevation factor.
Thanks, ... for the id.
I also feel more closer to Nepeta hindostana as per comparative images at Nepeta
