It is my pleasure to present few images of Lepidagathis pungens (Acanthaceae)
2. The india biodiversity portal lists L.pungens as a synonym of L.barberi with an image that I am convinced that it is L.pungens
3. The Digital Flora of Karnataka lists L.barberi but does not give any detail…!
4.The Plantlist says L.pungens is an unresolved name…!!!
Habitat: Wild, Semi-evergreen forest
Sighting: Mallandur, Chikmagalur, Karnataka, about 1300 msl
Considering the leaves and other characters it looks L. pungens only.
Looks like some Acanthus sp.
I think … is right. It seems to match with images at Acanthus spinosus L.
Can you check with local flora as Acanthus spinosus L. is not mentioned as either cultivated or wild in Karthikeyan et al. (2009) as per details at Acanthus ?
Yes … Will check and get back to you. Thanks.
I think it is Acanthus montanus.
