Achyrospermum densiflorum affirmative

I think it should be Achyrospermum wallichianum (Benth.) Benth. ex Hook.f. as per post by …: Fl. Arunachal_Achyrospermum wallichianum_RKC01_27102012 & as per keys in Flora of China.
Further Flora of China does not give distribution of Achyrospermum densiflorum Blume in India.

Lamiaceae member, …, take a look at once AR flora for exact,

Thanks for the lead … Unfortunately I don’t have access to Flower of Arunachal. Is anything available online?

You’re welcome …, sorry I too haven’t flora of Arunachal Pradesh,
finally, as per my observation your plant is Achyrospermum wallichianum,
check once you too with the link,

Great! I think you are right! The number of veins on the leaves decide against Achyrospermum densiflorum


Requesting I’d of Ajuga sp.: 3 high res. images.

I have come across an ajuga with unique morphological characteristics. I tried to identify the species but in vain. Your suggestions would be highly appreciated. Kindly check the attached photographs.

I do not think it is Ajuga:

It looks like something else.

Does not look like Ajuga !

Thank you. I will check other lamiaceae genera if it matches.

Resambles Achyrospermum. I had misidentified. Thank you.

Yes, you appear to be right.

Only one species is listed in BSI Flora of India.
I guess you are right
