Any Phlogacanthus ?
Can you ensure if leaves have acuminate apices?
This is probably Rhinacanthus, c.f. Rhinacanthus calcaratus Nees.
You should also check R. hessianus Diels – http://archive.today/ILwvx
I could find only two species of Rhinacanthus in India. Rhinacanthus nasutus & Rhinacanthus calcaratus NEES
Pl. see Rhinacanthus for details.
Yes, …, “Bengal Plants” & FBI also report two species. But, the problem is nowhere I could find that R. calcaratus have flowers with green upper lip.
So, this plant seems to be some other member from other genus.
The leaves is acuminate.
In Encyclopedia of Flora and Fauna of Bangladesh mention upper lip sub entire, lobe minute. Flower white, leaves acuminate. flowering March to June. I have taken this pictures 26 March,2009
Please find more pictures here with
In Bangladesh record of 2 species also. R.calcaratus was recorded from Chittagong District (Prain,1903)
R. nasutus found throughout the country
Looks like R. calcaratus.
Thank you …. It removes a number of confusions –
Well, as they say, all’s well that ends well!
