But, Lindernia oppositifolia (L.) Mukherjee has blue flowers -
Place : Hooghly

Couldn't find much info on plant description of Lindernia oppositifolia (L.) Mukerjee; though it seems to be very common as per IUCN !
One source informs (p87 of this linked doc) = flower is "white with pink centre. Locally abundant. On marshy ground within scrub jungles (K. M. Mathew)". But, the same doc fails to provide any detail, hesitant too!
I wonder why eFI, with its 2000+ members, doesn't have a third post on Lindernia oppositifolia (L.) Mukerjee !!!
Attaching screenshots of 1) Fl. Br. Ind. 2) F. I. 3) Botany of Bihar and Orissa.
Thank you,
here are the screenshots.
Feedback from another thread:
"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."

I think it is not Lindernia antipoda (L.) Alston, may be any other species
Thank you once again ..., i also noticed the differences in flowers.
I think this is Lindernia oppositifolia.
I am grateful to ... for the ID of this plant.
I think close to Lindernia micrantha D. Don as per another post: Scrophulariaceae Fortnight: unknown : sk01
