Pouzolzia sanguinea (Blume) Merr ??

I do not think it matches as per images at Pouzolzia sanguinea (Blume) Merr.

May be Boehmeria or other closely related genus.

I m was trying Boehmeria but could not find a match but I guess it could be !

Pouzolzia rugulosa (Wedd.) Acharya & Kravtsova. ???

Looks different from images at Boehmeria rugulosa

This one is likely Oreocnide frutescens with male inflorescense.
