Scrophulariaceae Fortnight: 2 in 1 : sk02 :  Attachments (6).  6 posts by 3 authors.
The one with much bigger flowers is Lindernia antipoda (L.) Alston, as have been identified earlier - https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/a---l/l/linderniaceae/lindernia/lindernia-antipoda.
(more precisely, i think not of FoC or F. B. I,, but Vandellia veronicaefolia of Haines) 
The one with much smaller flowers (in 1st and last pics) is same as in yesterday's post - https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/SDWmmB44VxU/gGqo1hRzZD8J.
Recorded today (5.8.13), in Hooghly.
Lindernia species in efi  
I am not confirmed, but think close to Lindernia oppositifolia (L.) Mukherjee. I can confirm on 14th Aug. the day I will go to Central National Herbarium. Based on this live photo, I can consult and identify.
Thanks ... Many thanks to ...
To me close up plant appears close to images at Lindernia antipoda (L.) Alston rather than Lindernia oppositifolia (L.) Mukerjee as per images herein.
 
it is from Peryar near the reservoir, taken on 11-5-09, I think it is
Whlenbergia marginata from Campanulaceae, experts please comment
I think it represents Lindernia sp. of Scrophulariaceae

I think its Lindernia antipoda
Yes now i think ... is right, this plant is Lindernia antipoda.
