As per the following links, this species does not exist in India:

Thanks, … Just click on it: Malvaceae of Southern Peninsular India: A Taxonomic Monograph
Pl. also go through if you are a member of Jstor: The Sida cuneifolia-Complex (Malvaceae) in Africa – Jstor
I think it may not be correct in view of papers as stated above.
Sida schimperiana Hochst. ex A. Rich. in FOI
The Sida cuneifolia-Complex (Malvaceae) in Africa delves into the issue.
If we follow them separately, then Sida schimperiana Hochst. ex A. Rich. in FOI has to be Sida cuneifolia
May pl. look into and correct the FOI page.
Thanks …, I think you are right here. I will make the correction.
