ID of herb from Assam KD 03 Feb 2015 : 6 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (6)

Attached images are unknown herb. Please ID the plant.  
Date :23.01.2015
Location: Assam
Family : ??
Genus & species : ??
Habitat: Grows wild on open space

Viola sp.

Viola species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)

I do not think it’s a Viola despite the leaf shape. 

This is Lobelia, but species level id is difficult, pictures are not clear except the flower, and no statistics available to determine. ID is not done this way.

One Lobelia zeylanica L. is similar looking, not the one in our database, search the net for other pics.
Since pedicel is long and leaves subsessile it is more likely Lobelia terminalis C. B. Clarke.
