Requesting to please ID this herb captured in a field near Devgad, Maharashtra in May 2014.
It is Spermacoce hispida (Borreria hispida) of Rubiaceae, a common weed in rainfed fields.
Although not clearly visible, corolla tube should be long.
It should be Spermacoce articularis as per comparative images at Spermacoce and as per keys at Flora of China
Possibly Neanotis so. But id cannot be conclusive.
Does not seem to match with any species so far at Neonotis
I think close to Spermacoce articularis only.
