Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Is it this year flowering picture.
Yes … another superb upload. Thanks for sharing. I think there is no distributional record of this species in Eastern Ghats.
Thanks to … for nice words.
This species is apparently endemic to the Western Ghats.
The flowering is almost over but you may find few flowering individuals in the evergreen forests

Check for Nilgirianthus warreensis…
Thank you sir. Is it a synonym of Strobilanthes warreensis?
Pl. also see this pdf: http://xavierscollege-goa.com/national/5.pdf
I don’t believe this is an Acanthaceae, let alone a Strobilanthes. Try Clerodendron (Verbenaceae) or Scrophulariaceae S.L.
the given plant specimen is Strobilanthes ciliatus Nees. Please check Rheedea. 23 (1): 1-7. 2013, for the paper ” Taxonomic status of Strobilanthes warreensis (Acanthaceae), an endemic species of Western Ghats, India” in which I have merged Strobilanthes warreensis Dalzell with Strobilanthes ciliatus Nees.
A small clarification required:
Is the correct spelling Strobilanthes ciliata or Strobilanthes ciliatus?
