Date: 27th Dec. 2010
From Mysore, Karnataka.
I am attaching some images with its illustration.
Deeply need some expert comment. 

– This does look to me like Hetaeria oblongifolia. The full citation on IPNI says t.14, unfortunately, there is no plate in the whole edition.
    I sent it to a friend who is expert in this group, .. for his comments and was waiting for his reply which I got today. He agrees with the id.

Article from Richardiana:

I am glad to inform you, my paper got published in Richardiana entitled “On the Occurrence of Hetaeria oblongifolia Blume in Western Ghats of India”. This species was shared earlier on eflora for identification and … and … posted needful comments on its identity, so by default credit goes to eflora India. 

Thanks, … Pl. keep up the good work.
Here is the Efloraofindia link:
