(i) bracts obovate or cuneate, elliptic, apiculate, not acuminate = D. roxburghiana Nees (D. chinensis)
(ii) bracts linear or linear-oblong, with nearly parallel margins, acuminate-cuspidate = var. bupleuroides (D. bupleuroides)
The key above is from “Bengal Plants”.
.  
Flora of British India recognises two taxa: D. roxburghiana Nees growing in plains on N. India from Punjab to Assam (it has elliptic acute leaves; bracts elliptic or obovate, apiculate not acuminate (less than twice as long as broad-eFl China) and D. roxburghiana var. bupleuroides growing in hills from 1000-6000 ft. (which is now treated as distinct species D. bupleuroides; leaves ovate or elliptic acute or acuminate; bracts linear or linear-oblong nearly parallel sided and acuminate-cuspidate at tip)
Pakistan Flora does not list D. roxburghiana and treats D. roxburgiana auct (non Nees); T. Anders as synonym of D. bupleuroides, in which flowers are supposed to be 12-15 mm long, lists flowers shorter than 5 mm in D. verticillata which also has linear-lanceolate bracts.
Flora of China luckily includes both the species D. bupleuroides (corolla 5 mm long) and D. chinensis (L.) Juss. (with D. roxburghiana Nees as synonym). Both are reported to be growing in India, D. bupleuroides according to Useful Plants of India, CSIR known as Bouna in Simla and D. Roxburhiana as Kirch or Somni in Punjab.

Acanthaceae sp for ID from Chakrata Kalsi Road, wild about 1-1.5 ft high

My guess Peristrophe sp may be roxburghiana


Seems to match with D. roxburghiana Nees [synonym of Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss.] images.

This will be Dicliptera bupleuroides as per images and details herein.

Dicliptera sp.


Pl. check with comparative images at Dicliptera


From comparative images at Dicliptera, it appears close to Dicliptera chinensis (L.) Juss.


On further examination and discussions at thread: Dicliptera bupleuroides Nees (accepted name) ??? , I feel it should be Dicliptera riparia Nees (syn: Dicliptera roxburghiana var. riparia (Nees) Benoist) as per distribution, specimens and references herein.


It may also be Dicliptera bupleuroides Nees as per images and details herein.



MS, Jan.,2021/07 Dicliptera sp. for id
1 image.
Location : Tamdil, Mizoram

Altitude : ca.750 m.
Habit : Herb
Habitat : Wild


Dicliptera sp. ?


What are the species reported in your area?


Dicliptera cuneata


Dicliptera bupleuroides, D.fera and D.sivarajanii are listed in mizoram


What are the keys as species look quite similar.

I feel it may be Dicliptera bupleuroides as per images and details herein and as per GBIF specimens from India. But I am not sure. Other species like D.fera as per GBIF specimens from India and from D.sivarajanii as per GBIF specimens from India, are also possible. 
Keys are required.
