This can be a Barleria sp.


Yes Barleria …… but not sure of the species


What about Barleria prionitis


Barleria cristata may also be considered


This may not be Barleria at all. Certainly not B. prionitis, nor B. cristata, at least.


… flower shape and texture reminds of Strobilanthes.


The search is on

Please look for yellow flowered Acanthaceae other than Barleria cristata and B. prionitis as suggested by …

…i think this is Barleria prionitis


…, please have a look at this link for B. prionitis flowers. They are completely different from the posted ones. And the plant is spiny in B. prionitis, with prominent, white spines.

DV :: 22APR11 – 0211 :: white acanthaceae: Had mistaken for Rhinacanthus nasutus until … pointed it not to be.
This herb found prostrate, growing among dry scrub vegetation on a gentle-sloped hillock, perhaps a climber. Could not locate leaves.

it looks like
Anisomeles heyneana Bth. in Wall Pl. As. Rar. 1: 59, 1831; Cl. in Hook. f., Fl. Brit. India 4: 672, 1883; Cooke, Fl. Pers. Bombay 2: 543, 1958 (Repr.); Almeida, Fl. Mah. 4: 140, 2003; Pradhan et al, Fl. SGNP 510, 2005.
Common name: Chandhara.


Many thanks … But it is not Anisomeles heyneana, very well aware of it.
