Came across this small Herb at Andamans. Flowers were tiny in size and
appearance wise i felt it could be from Acanthaceae Family. Kindly have a look at these enclosed photos. I could spot this herb only at two places in Bartang region.

A wild guess..!!
Could this be a Gesneriaceae member??
Probably Didymocarpus species??


This species is Codanacanthus sanjappae (Acanthaceae).


Thanks …  I think you are one of the author of the paper “Codonacanthus sanjappae sp. nov. (Acanthaceae) from Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India”…
