Plants of Uttarakhand – NSD 1- Strobilanthes glutinosus for validation: 2 images.
this plant is from Chamoli, Uttarakhand. Pic taken on 25/11/2022.
I think this is Strobilanthes glutinosus but not very sure please validate.

Please compare with this:

again thaks for providing a valuble information. After going through the paper I think my plant is not Strobilanthes glutinosus. I have one more plant which looks very similar to Strobilanthes glutinosus, I will post it saperately. I think my this plant may be Strobilathes capitata or S pentastemonoides. Any expert comment from your side.

Please have a look !

It looks like Strobilanthes capitata. Please Check.

Yes, it looks close. I hope there will be some comments from … !

I think it looks different from both S.glutinosus as well as from S.capitata.

THis is neither Strobilanthes capitata nor S. glutinosa. I think it may be Stribilanthes angustifrons C.B. Clarke which is a poorly known species. Do you have other photos?

This plant was abundant & full flowering bloom in the area. I am attaching some more pics.

Thanks for these. I think these are first good photos of Strobilanthes angustifrons which I have seen.

Here is one more population I need your help in fixing. Photographed from Kud at alt of around 1800 m near KUD along Jammu and Kashmir Highway.

I had sent this mail to Dr. Wood. Here is his reply
I am not sure about this. I think it might be Strobilanthes angustifrons which often has flowers in opposite pairs becoming clustered near the tips.
It seems to fit this.
This is from the same area as … plant from Patni top. I am not too sure whether they are same.
