I found these growing on the same spot where I usually find Lindernia nummulariifolia. Other years I missed them completely and am happy to finally know them. Please validate.

This herb was shot from near Shilling in Gori valley..
please help to id, if these pics can give any basis for id..
can this be the common one, Torenia cordifolia ?? …..the petals look longer.. 

efi page on Torenia cordifolia  

Yes, it is Torinea cordifolia

This species seems to be somewhat variable.
The petals do look longer than usual, and the leaves are acute at the base in the photos.
I have not been able to find what else it might be and have kept it as T. cordifolia.

Thanks a lot … and … for suggesting the id..

Requesting to please provide ID of this small plant captured near Mandi, HP in October 2014

flowers do not seem to be in focus
can any information be derived?
I wonder if the leaves can help?

Check for Torenia sp. (Scrophulariaceae)…..

Still trying to search on the net and also waiting for comments, if any on this forum..

One feature I can see here is winged calyx. Will it help in ID? I am not familiar with the plant.

Appears close to images at Torenia cordifolia Roxb.
