Beautiful images, I hope it is Murdania… which one …?

Please check Murdannia gigantea (Vahl) G.Brückn. !

Thank you very much for ID my plant. I observed the hairy stigma centered is clearly in all my flowers, but not at eFI, check collage (my flower at top) and please clarify,

Please see if these match.

Yes, they are matching, beautiful images, thank you very much for sharing,

Yes, appears close to images at Murdannia gigantea (Vahl) G.Brückn.

I think the flowering shoot here is terminally positioned in the rosette of leaves. If so, this could be Murdannia gigantea (Vahl) G.Brückn.
