Sharing the images of Acalypha fruticosa from Adyar, Chennai.

Acalypha fruticosa.

I am not sure whether it is Acalypha or some other genus. The inflorescences are densely flowered, with no indication of separate regions for female and male flowers. This rules out the possibility of Acalypha fruticosa. Please check the flowers carefully and find out whether the female flowers are enclosed in folded bracts.

My earlier comments remains. I am not sure whether it is Acalypha fruticosa or not.
