L lutea has yellow flower hence there is no chance for this name for your plant.

I think this plant can be
Lepidagathis cuspidata Nees in Wall.,


I think ur identification is correct. Though Lepidagathis is a big genus. I’m also trying ti validate ur id.


Please make the lovely effort to validate my identification. Hope my ID finds its way to the top.


I think this to be L. rigida Dalz.


This may be Nelsonia canescens


Lepidagathis prostrata as per another thread.


Looks different from images at Lepidagathis


I think it may be Lepidagathis shrirangii as per new publication at Lepidagathis shrirangii (Acanthaceae) a new species from Konkan region of Maharashtra, India


May I request you to pl. confirm this as Lepidagathis shrirangii as per your publication at Lepidagathis shrirangii (Acanthaceae) a new species from Konkan region of Maharashtra, India


Yes It’s L. shrirangii.


Yes !

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


After scanning flora of Bombay presidency I would say this is lepidagathis prostrata, Dalz  in Kew Journ. Boi. v. 2 (1850)

Good identification …! I think you are right.

Thanks … for showing us this interesting plant.


could u also check the characters for L. rigida just to understand how L. prostrata is different than rigida….


L.prostrata is prostrate as you described in your table it is spread on ground if it is L.rigida then it should be erect herb.

In L.prostrata lower lip is oblong whereas (in L.rigida lower lip is oblong obtuse)
Please refer snapshot and illustration of L.rigida

I meant peer reviewed papers or reviews in real journals


A reply from … in the older thread:

“This may be Nelsonia canescens”


Found this harbarium scan on Kew Website this might help
