Dyschoriste litoralis (L.f.) Nees (= D, madurensis (Burm.f) Kuntze); Fam: Acanthaceae

Thirukalukundram hill area , Kanchepuram DT, Tamilnadu
Ascending herb, flowering and fruit, observed in Andhra Pradesh at Talakona Altitude is around 50m

Nice photographs

Different Indian & Sri Lankan refrences only mention Dyschoriste madurensis (Burm.f.) Kuntze as per Dyschoriste.
I don’t know how it has been made as syn. of  Dyschoriste litoralis (L.f.) Nees by The Plant List  based on  WCSP (in review) .
Any clarification in the matter will be most welcome.

It is Dyschoriste madurensis (Burm.f) Kuntze in Flora of Tamilnadu. I presented following the plant list.

Is the type specimen from Madurai?
