can anyone help me id this herb
It is found growing in post harvested paddy field 
at Sawantwadi MH on January 2016
Is some species of Hygrophila ?
Comparative images of Hygrophila species so far in efi 
Probably a Scrophulariaceae?
check Lindernia spp
Lindernia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)  
It may not be Lindernia, because 2 bracteoles are seen; in Lindernia bracteoles are absent.
this is Bacopa floribunda Scrophulariaceae. Not a very common plant though for our state. I have seen a good population of this species in Ganjam district of Odisha in wet soils between see shore and Cashew plantation last year.
Thank you so much

Scrophulariaceae herb for identification :: MKMAY012 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (7)
Please help me in identifying this Scrophulariaceae species.
Its a wetland plant, the background in the pics is the habitat.
Plant height: 20 cm
Habitat: wetland (marsh soil)
Date: 09 May 2015
Location: near Kelambakkam, Kancheepuram dist., TN
Alt.: 30 m asl
Could you finally identify it ?
Plant somewhat looks like Ammania sp. but not exactly!

Could this plant be Centranthera tranquebarica

Distribution is there but flower color is confusing!
It is Baccopa floribunda
The herb looks very much like Bacopa floribunda.
