Requesting to please ID this plant captured at Kanheri Caves, SGNP in Aug 2014.
Lecanthus peduncularis and Utricularia striatula
The first plant looks like a species of Elatostema [possibly E.cuneatum] to me. Unfortunately cannot find the link to my photographs of this in the archives of this group. Perhaps ... could oblige.
you may well be right. I saw lots of Lecanthus at the weekend at Matheran and didn't look closely to see the difference here. 
Managed to find the link. This was identified by ... Google Groups
Thanks, ..., yes, that is the same plant.

I had earlier seen these in Coorg and Chikamagalur (Karnataka) but both the times I only got blurry shots.
This particular one was shot in Chimmony Wildlife Sanctuary, Kerala.
Can it be an Urticaceae member?
Shot in November 2014
One more photo-
Please check Elatostema cuneatum of Urticaceae
It matches. Thank you very much.
