COSTUS SPECIOSUS: Attaching an image of Costus speciosus in bloom. It is known as keu in Hindi/Bangla.  

It is learned from "The Plant list" site that Costus speciosus is a synonym of Cheilocostus speciosus (J.König) C.Specht (http:// www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-343835) of Costaceae family. Lots of shuffling is happening. Hope this would be the end of most of the confusions, or I dont know it would lead more..... 

Mine have not yet commenced flowering this year. Sending a few of last years photographs. 

In Kerala this species has started flowering 2 weeks back itself.

Flower ID Request 13-08-2011:  I grabbed this pic of a flower growing in IIT Bombay today. The plant had

This is probably Costus speciosus. Common in Sahyadri, especially in monsoon locally known as Koshtha or Pev. 

yes it is now known as Cheilocostus speciosus (J.König) 

Yes it is Cheilocostus speciosus (J.König) C.Specht of Costaceae family.

Your help in ID solicited
may be costus sp. sir
Costus barbatus appears to be the closest match to me. Your comments please.
Why not Cheilocostus speciosus?
... i think stem was not spiral in this plant
The two really look similar, C. barbatus has yellow flowers, C. speciosus white. Wish we had some with emerging flowers.  ... suggestion can be seriously considered, latter being a Himalayan plant, former of Costa Rico

Cheilocostus speciosus (J. Koenig) C. D. Specht
(syn: Costus speciosus J. Koenig
Wild ginger, Cane reed
Photographed from TDL Herbal Garden Yamunanagar, pl. validate 
I hope the identification is right..
The name of this species has been changed very recently. Specht & Stevenson (2006) proposed a separate genus status for this species as Cheilocostus speciosus (J.Koenig) C.D.Specht (2006: 159) based on a new phylogeny-based classification of the family Costaceae. They choose C. speciosus as the type species based on Banksea speciosa J.Koenig (1783: 75). But this generic name is a later parahomonym of Banksia J.R.Forster & G.Forster and is  treated as a homonym. Thus Cheilocostus is a replacement name for Banksea. However, already in 1791, Retzius had published a replacement name for Banksea, namely Hellenia Retzius. Thus, Cheilocostus is an illegitimate superfluous name for Hellenia
Dr. Suchandra Dutta (2010) proposed a new combination based on this, as Hellenia speciosa (J.Koenig) S.R.Dutta (2010: 152) but she considered the basionym to be Costus speciosus Koenig ex Smith instead of  Banksea speciosa J.G. Koenig thus the combination became illegitimate. However she rectified the mistake and legitmately published the name Hellenia speciosa (J. Koenig ex Smith) S. Duta later (Pleione 7(1): 28 - 29. 2013). 
Goaverts (2013) published the same combination in same year (2013) as Hellenia speciosa (J.Koenig) Govaerts unaware of the second publication of Dr. Dutta (Phytotaxa 151 (1): 63–64; 2013). However according to the rule of priority the combination of Dr. Dutta is valid which hadbeen published earlier 
Thus the correct name is Hellenia speciosa (J. Koenig ex Smith) S. Dutta, Pleione 7(1): 228. 2013 
Thanks ... for detailed explanation of the latest name
