As per efi thread:
When in doubt I always fall back on FBI. Though two species B. prionitis and B. cuspidata look similar, the deciding factor is leaves subsessile narrowly oblong lanceolate, not more than 8 mm broad in B. cuspidatadistinctly petiolate (petiole 12-25 mm long), elliptic, 2-4 cm broad in B. prionitisAlso bracts of B. cuspidata are narrowly lanceolate smaller; larger, foliaceous and elliptic in B. prionitis.
.
As per efi thread :

Please refer to Cooke’s Flora

Barleria prionitis L. : leaves elliptic, acuminate bristle-tipped; bracteoles linear-subulate; flowers spicate above
Barleria cuspidata Heyne ex Nees: leaves subsessile, oblong-lanceolate, acute, bristle-tipped; bracteoles zero or a few minute bristles; flowers solitary in opposite axils.
.
Both species are showing 2 stamens but the flower colour is different in prionitis and cuspidata.
In prionitis flower is orange-yellow but in cuspidata it is yellow.
In both plants leaves are ovate-elliptic, flowers solitary or axillary and bracts linear-lanceolate.
But
Outer sepals with glandular hairs inside; style glabrous………………………………………. B. cuspidata
Outer sepals without glandular hairs inside; style hirsute at base .………………………… B. prionitis

A Barleria species, B. lupulina?


In B. lupulina the inflorescence is different, a terminal spike with prominent leafy bracts.

Here, this would be Barleria prionitis L., please check


This herb is Barleria cuspidata, as the leaves suggest. B.prionitis have elliptic leaves.

Earlier discussion on this plant.


Again, … corrected my mistake, I guess.

PA100045 & 46 … Barleria montana … commonly known as: mountain barleria • Marathi: डोंगरी कोरांटी dongari koranti
PA100048 & 49 … Barleria cuspidata … commonly known as: lesser yellow nail-dye, spiny barleria • Marathi: काटे कोरांटी kate koranti, पिवळी कोरांटी pivali koranti • Sanskrit: कुरंटक kurantaka • Tamil: மஞ்சட்செம்முள்ளி mañcat-cemmulli, வெள்ளைமுள்ளி vellaimuli … … … Barleria prionitis is confusingly close to B. cuspidata  … I manage to take one for the other. …. clarifying comments please.


PA100045 & 46 is Barleria prattensis Santapau as per another thread

Barleria pionitis..?
Check for the spines..


But the leaves are different here.


check it with Barleria cuspidata. it also bears similar flowers.


Please refer to Cooke’s Flora

Barleria prionitis L. : leaves elliptic, acuminate bristle-tipped; bracteoles linear-subulate; flowers spicate above
Barleria cuspidata Heyne ex Nees: leaves subsessile, oblong-lanceolate, acute, bristle-tipped; bracteoles zero or a few minute bristles; flowers solitary in opposite axils.

Hence it can be comfortably said to be Barleria cuspidata Heyne ex Nees


I am extremely sorry the wrong name please excuse me and pardon me for my negligence. yes the plant is Barleria cuspidata Heyne ex Nees.


One more picture of the same plant bearing solitary flowers on opposite axils.


Barleria cuspidata !!

Seen this Barleria in a village near coastal Devgad, MH in the last week of December 2020.

Requested to please provide ID. Am confused between B. prionitis and B. cuspidata?


Bracts  linear, spine-tipped………………………. cuspidata.

Bracts foliaceous………………………………………prionitis

your plant seems cuspidata ma’am,

Andipatti hills flora 17062012 TBN 01 FOR ID: Please identify this plant details of which are as follows:

Date : 17/06/2012                                                          
Location :Malattar dam, Andipatti hills, near Usilampatti( Coordinates: N10* 02 487; E 077* 46 234)Altitude :1050 ft
Habitat :thorny scrub Rf; wild
Habit 😕 under shrub
Height :20 cm
Leaves :As depicted
Flowers :White
Fruits : not seen
Local name :not known


I think this plant is Barleria cuspidata of Acanthaceae.


It is not Barleria cuspidata. In B. cuspidata leaves are Ovate-elliptic. It is linear.
It shows close similarity to my new species B. tamilnadensis (in press) except in the flower colour.


Barleria cristata is very variable!!


In Barleria cristata thorns are absent.


Ok, I agree 🙂


It may be Barleria acanthoides. The key in the recent revision lead me to this id.
Ref.: Revision of the Genus Barleria (Acanthaceae) in India. By Shanksr & Yadav 2010.
Its nice to know about the new find, … Congrats! I look forward to see your published paper…


I think this plant is distributed in Sirumalai hills and Alagar Kovil hills as well.


If I may say so, this apparently unusual plant indicates that there is so much need for extensive fieldwork to unearth all the existing species.


It is different from B. acanthoides from its appearance.
The plant height of this plant is upto 40 cm, leaves linear and petiole up to 0.2 or absent.


It doesn’t look like B. noctiflora either. I look forward to know its id.


It is Barleria cuspidataFlowers white, spine long, straight, leaves oblong-lanceolate


Thanks, …

You may be right as per images at Barleria cuspidata (However, colour is most yellow).
But earlier feedback as below creates doubt:
“It is not Barleria cuspidata. In B. cuspidata leaves are Ovate-elliptic. It is linear.
It shows close similarity to my new species B. tamilnadensis (in press) except in the flower colour.
Unfortunately, I am not getting the publication on the net.

Pl. Check for Barleria noctiflora.


As per Gamble FPM it is perfectly matching; and I have collected with very light yellow to white flowers and identified by BSI as B.cuspidata


Yes. Barleria cuspidata.


Seems to be B. cuspidata


Could this be Barleria cuspidata?


Yes, it is.
