I photographed this last year and did not manage to share it here. I am hoping to make better acquaintance with the species this year. Hopefully I will be able to do so soon. Please advise if I am making a mistake in the identification.

Could not find images on net to validate.

Neither I could find any image. Only I found is herbarium sp.

Leave base looks different.

Request for your opinion for the correct ID.

This Teucrium sp. and I need to check the book to see which species it is. Thanks.

Thank you …! Teucrium viscidum Blume ?? Teucrium listed in Nepal. Enclosing some more images.

No, it is not Teucrium viscidum, should be another species. I need to check.

I don’t think it matches with the other sp. of Teucrium as listed in the EFNepal

Teucrium quadrifariumBuch.-Ham. ex D. Don, ??

Pl. check Teucrium laxum as per
Only one herbarium and no images found in the net.

Do you agree with the id ?

Still not been able to close in.

Have you looked at Plectranthus?

I guess this is Teucrium quadrifarium Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don !

I think you may be right as per images and details at Teucrium quadrifarium
