Marshy place herb for Id from East Siang Arunachal Pradesh: Some time back on way to Jenging I photographed this plant along the road side in a marshy place. It was in vegetative condition, about 15cm tall and compact colony was eye catching. Elevation of the place was about 800m.

Please check it for Limnophila villosa / L. chinensis.
