Dopatrium junceum

Can you please help me with the identification of this aquatic flowering plant. This was rooted, unbranched with small leaves, submerged as well as coming out of water. It was observed near Panshet in Pune. It was found in a wetland area.

Its probably Dopatrium junceum of Scrophulariaceae….

Looks like Dopatrium junceum ……… close up of flowers is required for clear id

Dopatrium junceum
Saw this tiny herb for the first time at Malhargad near Pune in July 2021 on a small hillock.
This was in a small waterhole on the hillock. 2 years ago at the same place I had seen Caesulia axillaris (also for the first time). But there was no trace of the same this year around, probably because of lesser rains.

Yes !
