Justicia wynaadensis

Justicia andersonii Wassh (= Justicia santapaui Bennet)

Could you through some light on this as you have posted Justicia wynaadensis.

…, I have posted the same plant in DVJAN04that … is sharing in this post.

… has suggested Justicia wynaadensis; and … – Justicia andersonii Wassh (= Justicia santapaui Bennet) 
but flowers of :
J. wynaadensis are borne in pairs on spikes 5 – 10 cm long
J. santapaui are relatively large, about 2 – 3 cm in size.
I am skeptical about the posted plant being J. wynaadensis; and am sure it is not J. santapaui.

Perhaps … can help us with his thoughts.

Justicia santapaui could be the correct ID !
