To me looks different from images at

ID of this plant is lying pending since a long time with a friend also. I had opportunity to click it. Tried all Lamiaceae listed in the efn but no luck.

Thanks for the mail. In Colquhounia coccinea var. mollis, it would be densely hairy, but in this images I find sparsely hairy, so I go for the typical variety coccinea 

In all Colquhounia sp. listed in Nepal I noticed yellow patch in the rear petal which 
is not found in this sp.

Please check Flora of China, one may get some clue.

Thank you .. Colquhounia seguinii Vaniot ?? But not listed in Nepal.

Thank you … Image I searched in web is more or less matching. But specimens to be studied carefully before coming to final conclusion. It may be extended distribution to Nepal.

Could you please look into this if it is Colquhounia seguinii Vaniot ??

Thank you for you pictures, very beautiful. I think it is Colquhounia coccinea var. coccinea. Attached is C. seguinii from China.

Thank you … for the ID.
By then way I could not find better images in the net except one for better comparison. Appreciate if I can see some more images if you have.
On striking character of this flower is there is no yellow patch in the rear of petal.

Here I attached other species for your comparison.

Thank you …, for images of other species.
By the way appreciate if you could send some images of Colquhounia coccinea var. coccinea.

This should be listed as Colquhounia coccineavarcoccineaWall. according to ...

sharing the image of an unknown wild flower….
shot near Kolakham-Lava in the Neora Valley NP of the Eastern Himalayas.
Time: December 2010.
Camera: Kodak z980
Height: 5500 feet approx.

I have searched the net once again and my conclusion (conclusion of a novice) is –
1) It is a member of Gesneriaceae family
2) sepal and petal colour suggest a Aeschynanthus sp., might be A. lanceolatus (http://www.infojardin) or some hybrid (http://www.zoonar.html) or another similar looking – http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/47110/#b
3) leaf margin and texture suggest might be a Besleria sp., …. don’t know if there is any Besleria without decussate leaves. This link might be of some use- http://jerojetw.blogspot.html

Looks like some var./subsp. of Colquhounia coccinea


Yes, … seems to be correct.
