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 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.
