Attached images may be Rumex maritimus L collected from Assam. My earlier post. Please ID the Species.
No doubt in genus, however I have a doubt in species name.
Of all Rumex described in Fl-Brit-Ind this can only be R. maritimus L.
1) The taxon needs to be verified as per FoC
2) Fl-Brit-Ind connects R. m. with a number of citations and one is R. chinensis Campd. You can see the key at – http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=128864#KEY-1-7
3) Sir Prain as well as Fl-Brit-Ind equates R. m. with R. acutus of Flora Indica. In Roxburgh’s own words, “….. valvelets all grain-bearing, at the flowering time entire, at the fruit time toothed…. .” Roxburgh also noted down the difference with European plants.

efi page on Rumex maritimus
Image quality is very poor, however it looks matching with Rumex dentatus L., Mant.
To me appears more closer to images and details at Rumex maritimus
