Lamiaceae (Incl. Verbenaceae) Fortnight: For id from Morni Hills- NS May 75/75 : 8 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (7)
This herb was recorded from Morni hills recently..
I could not get to its id, generic level suggestion from an expert says this is any Pogostemon sp…
Please give your inputs towards id..
Please also check for Ajuga macrosperma.
If filaments are hairy it may be Pogostemon sp.
so one needs to dissect the flower and take close ups of the parts? or atleast make notes and report them?
is that how it goes?
This is not Pogostemon.
It might be Ajuga species and not Pogostemon.
I also think closer to images at Ajuga macrosperma Wall. ex Benth.

Could this be a Nelsonia sp.?
Yes agreed with …
Leaves elliptic, elliptic-oblong, hairy on both sides, flowers bluish purple in spikes.
This may be Nelsonia canescens of Acanthaceae
It looks like Ajuga macrosperma to me.
I also think it matches with images at Ajuga macrosperma Wall. ex Benth.

Habit : Wild
Could be Pogostemon sp.
Any hint from the list I could not match.
Sorry …; am not able to confirm sp. because Lamiaceae have more morphological variations, we want to check with keys from Nepal flora, sir.
I sent the list found in Nepal
It was in my first reply to you.
I checked all the listed species in Checklist of Nepal as per
Pogostemon amarantoides (gbif)
Pogostemon glaber Benth. (efi)
But I could not decide. It may turn out to be Pogostemon benghalensis (Burm.f.) Kuntze
Does not look like Pogostemon !
How do you say that ?
My observation is :
1. Difference in flowering season.
2. Difference of elevation.
3. Difference of leaf pattern
4. It is more hairy on flowering tuft in this sp compared to P. benghalensis.

Looks like Ajuga, but leaves and inflorescence characters are somewhat different from A. macrosperma, as I have seen more dentate form only (leaf margins toothed). this might be variation. In A. macrosperma the inflorescence is not dense as here but may be ecological variation. So for time being keep in A. macrosperma!

Looks like either Scutellaria or Ajuga. But in Scutellaria the flowers are some what long and curved, so I feel Ajuga!
