Murdannia Spirata ? I hope i am right

Yes it is Murdannia spirata

Could you please explain the difference between the plant under discussion here and this link

Murdannia nudiflora is having two fertile stamens. 
While others that are discussing with relation to your earlier thread, I said it could be a Murdannia dimorpha. Why because I am very familiar to these species, it is having lax thyrses as compare to M. spirata. But I was not sure that time, need to see the seeds and other characters.
