Lindernia for identification 070912MK03: 
 
Please help me to identify this small herb. I identified this as Lindernia crustacea of Scrophulariaceae, but had doubts after going through the discussion on ... plant here
Height: 10-15cm long
Leaf: 2-3 cm long
Habitat: wet rocky place
Locale: a private tea estate
Place: Valparai, TN
Alt: 950 m asl
Date: 28 July 2012
Your identification seems to be correct.
Does not match with images at Lindernia crustacea (L.) F.Muell.
This very small herb was frequently reported along roadsides throughout the Chakrata region, probably as Lindernia sp. have also been posted by ... for id.. please help.
A nice series of images ...
I have labeled my images of this flower as Lindernia caespitosa.
M R Almeida's (Fl MH) keys are based capsule length wrt calyx, which I am unable to compare here (as also in my own set of images) therefore am unable to be absolutely certain.
Had a quick look at FoC but no L. caespitosa mentioned there but something similar in what they label as Deinstema sp. - not sure whether it's applicable to India or not.
Here are the refrences, I got for Lindernia pusilla (Willd.) Bold. (syn. Lindernia caespitosa (Blume) Panigrahi):

IUCN Red List (LC) (Lindernia pusilla (Willd.) Bold. (Syn: Lindernia caespitosa (Blume) Panigrahi; Lindernia hirta (Cham. & Schltdl.) Pennell; Lindernia laxa (Benth.) Mukherjee; Torenia hirta Cham. & Schltdl.; Vandellia scabra Benth.)

It appears Lindernia nummularifolia
It is not listed in Nepal neither synonym.

Torenia or Lindernia? 270810-PKA2 : Attachments (9). 10 posts by 6 authors.
Came across this herb at "Hasha-Chi- Patti" on the way to Matheran. I had seen only one plant in the entire stretch. I remember seeing the similar herb at Purandar.
Date/Time: 21-08-2010
Location: "Hasha-Chi- Patti" on the way to Matheran.
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Herb ( 15cm approx)

Lindernia--------calyx lobes not winged on back, actinomorphic
Torenia----------calyx lobed winged on back, 2-lipped
Wings are somewhat seen but not 2-lipped.
I think Torenia from the Sir Ji's key but not sure of the species
This is definitely a Torenia sp. possibly Torenia lindernioides.
Photo from Nadugani Ghats of Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. I took the photo one month before.
It is a small herb found on the wet rocks.
Appears same as ... plant
Yes sir, It is more or less look like the earlier plant.
..., as requested by you, I checked the keys in Dr. Almeida's flora. Your plant is certainly Torenia. There are eight species of Torenis described in the flora. The main distinguishing feature being calyx narrowly winged or calyx broadly winged.  
There are two features that stand out in your post. The deltoid ovate leaves and the arching filaments. I am not sure whether the calyx in your pictures should be considered narrowly or broadly winged. If one considers the calyx broadly winged- it should be T. indica. It is found in Matheran.
Here the key from the flora Vol  III B , pg 423:
 Torenia Linn
1.Calyx broadly winged------------------------------------------------------------2
     2. Filaments toothed------------------------------------------- T. cordifolia         
     2. Filaments not toothed                                                     3
           3. Flowers with dark purple patches------------------ T.fournieri
           3.Flowers without dark purple patches---------------  T. indica
1. Calyx narrowly winged                                                         4  
     4. Fruiting calyx ribbed                                                       5
           5. Flowers solitary                                                        6
                6. Calyx hirsute; corolla pale blue with dark 
                    blotches on the lobes of lower lip---------------T. diffusa
                6. Calyx not hirsute ; corolla purple, no
                    dark blotcheson lips---------------------------------T. bicolor
            5. Flowers in clusters---------------------------------------T. thouarsii
     4. Fruiting calyx not ribbed                                                 7
            7.Corolla less thn 1 cm long-----------------------------T. lindernioides
            7. Corolla more than 2 cm long-------------------------T. asiatica

I am enclosing two sp. for comparison. As per me the left ones are Torenia indica and the right ones are unidentified. These looks totally different. Requesting members to have a look. 
I think Torenia fournieri
This one was shot from Gobind ghat-Ghanghariya trek, perhaps a Lindernia sp. again..can this be L. dubia ?
I think it may not be Lindernia dubia in view of Id at another thread by ...
Yes ..., this looks different..still open for discussion..

This herb was shot just 2 kms away from Govindghat on the way to Ghangriya
I think Veronica persica
Any Lindernia sp.?
Yes ... I think you are much more closer than me.
I think closer to images at Lindernia nummulariifolia (D.Don) Wettst.
Wild Herb For ID : Lonavala : 300713 : AK-2 : Attachments (1). 7 posts by 3 authors.
A small herb seen growing wild at Karla, near Lonavala on 29/7/13.
Sorry for the bad picture quality due to cloudy weather and heavy rains. Id please.
Any Limnophila sp.?
Leaves are looking different to the Limnophila I found on FOI.
Could be a Torenia species?
... do u have any other picture of the same showing flowers ? Please upload which will help to conform
Indeed difficult to identify due to uncler image. Possibility of Lindernia sp. (Bonnaya sp.)
I have just this picture of the tiny flower.
It was raining very heavily and getting difficult to take good pictures due to poor light and rain.
On searching for Lindernia on FOI, the closest I found was Lindernia nummulariifolia, common name False Pimpernel.
Kindly have a look.
There is also possibility of Lindernia also.
To me also appear close to images at Lindernia nummulariifolia (D.Don) Wettst.

Yes, appears close to images at Lindernia nummulariifolia as per comparative images at Lindernia 

Taking this as Craterostigma sessiliflorum in view of discussion at Craterostigma nummulariifolium (D.Don) Eb. Fisch., Schäferh. & Kai Müll. 
Did not find listing in Nepal neither synonyms.
Pl. see distribution in Nepal as per Catalogue of Life;
Flora of China gives distribution of Lindernia nummulariifolia (D. Don) Wettstein in Nepal.
Listed in checklist of Nepal as Lindernia nummularifolia (D. Don) Wettst.

Thanks, …
But what surprised me is that Catalogue of Life gives distribution of Craterostigma nummulariifolium (D. Don) Eb. Fisch., Schäferh. & Kai Müll. (syn: Lindernia nummularifolia (D. Don) Wettst.) as Senegal, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Gabon, Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, D.R. Congo (Zaire), Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Angola, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Society Isl. (I) (Tahiti (I)), Fiji (I).
That sent me on the hunt for correct id of our plant.  
Pl. see Lindernia nummulariifolia (D.Don) Wettst., Nat. Pflanzenfam. 4(3b): 80 1891. (syn: Vandellia nummulariifolia D. Don, Prodr. Fl. Nepal. 86. 1825; Lindernia sessiliflora (Bentham) Wettstein; Vandellia chinensis T. Yamazaki; V. sessiliflora Bentham.) as per Flora of China.
Checklist of Nepal only gives Lindernia nummularifolia (D. Don) Wettst. without any synonyms and distribution as 900-2900 m; Himalaya (Kashmir to Sikkim), India, Ceylon, Burma, W. & C. China.
Taxonomic Revision of Lindernia All. (Scrophulariaceae sensu lato) In Taiwan (2012) gives only Lindernia nummulariifolia (D.Don) Wettst., Nat. Pflanzenfam. 4(3b): 80 1891. (syn: Vandellia nummulariifolia D. Don) with distribution as India, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, W. and C. China, Madagascar, Taiwan in wet meadows in south (Pingtung County)
What about Lindernia sessiliflora (Bentham) Wettstein given in Flora of China as it is not mentioned in Craterostigma nummulariifolium (D. Don) Eb. Fisch., Schäferh. & Kai Müll. in Catalogue of Life. Catalogue of life gives this as a syn. of Craterostigma sessiliflorum (Benth.) Y. S. Liang & J. C. Wang with distribution as China (Gansu, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Zhejiang), Tibet, Myanmar [Burma], Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, peninsular Malaysia (Melaka), Singapore (I), Java, India, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Sri Lanka, Pakistan (Murree, Rawalpindi), Jammu & Kashmir (Poonch). 
Thus, plant in our area may be Craterostigma sessiliflorum (Benth.) Y. S. Liang & J. C. Wang with distribution as China (Gansu, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Zhejiang), Tibet, Myanmar [Burma], Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, peninsular Malaysia (Melaka), Singapore (I), Java, India, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Sri Lanka, Pakistan (Murree, Rawalpindi), Jammu & Kashmir (Poonch).
This may be due to some recent taxonomic revisions etc. On searching, I found  New combinations in Craterostigma and Torenia (Linderniaceae) from Asia with key to allied species Phytotaxa Vol 247, No 2 (2016) by YI-SHUO LIANG, JENN-CHE WANG (Abstract- Traditionally, Lindernia s.l. Allioni (1766: 178) was the largest genus within Linderniaceae, with about 100 species, including members of Bonnaya Link & Otto (1820: 25), Ilysanthes Rafinesque (1820: 13), and Vandellia Linnaeus (1767: 384) (Pennell 1935, Rahmanzadeh et al. 2005). This concept (Pennell 1935) was adopted by subsequent taxonomists (e.g., Philcox 1968, Tsoong & Ku 1979, Yamazaki 1981, Fischer 1992, Lewis 2000, Liang et al. 2012) until Fischer et al. (2013), based on molecular and morphological evidence, proposed a more restrict circumscription of Lindernia s.str., separated from Bonnaya, Vandellia, Craterostigma Hochstetter (1841: 668), Crepidorhopalon Fischer (1989: 443), Torenia Linnaeus (1753: 619), and the new genus Linderniella Fischer et al. (2013: 227)). But one has to log in to see the details.
I guess you are right … but could not get sufficient images for comparison.

Kindly let us know the identity.

Craterostigma nummulariifolium (D.Don) Eb. Fisch., Schäferh. & Kai Müll. ??
Syn : Lindernia nummularifolia (D. Don) Wettst.
I too agreed with ...
I always thought it grows in mud, bogs edges of muddy water bodies. never seen any pictures where it grew in stone or cracks in walls. First for me

I had seen that species in Sikkim as a common herb with red globose fruits. But please note that the fruits are different here. Please enlighten me.
Did you mean by Hemiphragma heterophyllum Wall. ??
Thank you, ..., for point out and enlighten me, it really differs from lindernia,
Lobebia nummularia is entirely different in its fruits. I think this is some other species.
Yes ...! I tried that too !
Can it be something like Lindernia nummulariifolia (D.Don) Wettst. ?
They have collected that also. But here the fruits are entirely different.
Will this help ?
