- it does look like B. malabarica. Here are two links for this sp.
- Not Debregeasia longifolia which has oblong to lanceolate leaves and dichotomously branched inflorescence.
Pl follow this link: http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=50542&flora_id=2
To me this also looks like Boehmeria glomerulifera (B. malabarica).
