Impatiens oppositifolia ??

newly discovered impatiens from the western ghats. look at BSI publications
these are yearly reports.
in English and more detailed:   Home of BSI >Public Information>Plant Discoveries
these are yearly reports.
one paper …. from the net …as an example
https://sci-hub.tw/10.11646/phytotaxa.302.2.10

Also check comparative images at efi site, if … id is not matching.


Can it be I. rosea, it had a very short spur.



I also agree with … for Impatiens oppositifolia rather than Impatiens rosea as per images and details herein.

Saw this Impatiens species at Kas in Satara. MH in October 2019.
This looks more like Impatiens oppositifolia than the one I had posted earlier.
This is a bit confusing for me.
Also, the 2 plants looking a bit different. Are they 2 different species.
