I would be happier to know the id of this Labiate species.
Place: Satyamangalam in Eastern Ghats
Alt: 900 – 1000 msl
Date: November 2008

My same plant at the following Indiantreepix thread still remaining unided.
Attaching a same pictures again. Suggestions were for Melissa or Sutera sp.

Looks similar to Stachy sericea, I had uploaded from HP a few days back

I find that Stachys scaberula is reported from Khasi mountains. Could it be that?

Your plant is totally different, with broad upper calyx lobe.
My request, let us not post different plants in the same thread. It increases confusion. They can referred through a link

I still have the feeling that both are the same plant with broad upper calyx lobe.

Thanks to … Now I feel after browsing lots of images of Stachys, it is may be from Stachys genus. Question remains of the species.

for me … pictures look like Endostemon viscosus.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

I doubt that Stachys spp. has not been reported from TN (any synonyms for this?).
The sub shrub is closer to Endostemon viscosus but the character: ‘corolla 4+1’ is missing (reff: K.M.Matthew), …, could you please clear this?  

I think matches with images at Endostemon viscosus (Roth) M.R.Ashby



Herb for Id 020908JM4 : 6 posts by 3 authors.

On 16/8/08 in Talakona forest, AP. Seen along roadside- a smallish herb.

The picture reminds me of Zitronenmelisse (germanname (Melissa officinalis) but the flowers look a bit different, than what i see here normally. Let expersts give their comments  Lemonbalm (english 

Can it be some Sutera species- pl. see the link for Sutera cordata

I dont thing its Sutera. I feel it belongs to lamiaceae

I think matches with images at Endostemon viscosus (Roth) M.R.Ashby

Appears same as per WCSP, quite a reliable work by KEW.
Pl. also see Endostemon viscosus
