Herbaceous, ramous. Leaves attaining 3.1/2 by 2 in., mostly much smaller, crenate or denticulate, sparsely hairy above, pubescent beneath ; petiole 1.1/2 in. Flower- clusters 1-5 (often 3) together, subsessile ; bracts opposite, paired, flower in one of each pair nearly always 0 or much reduced ; bracteoles 1/4-1/3 in., linear-lanceolate, nearly as long as the bracts. Calyx 1/8 in. Corolla pink or white. Capsule 1/3 in., nearly glabrous. Seeds verrucose.—The placentae tend to rise elastically, and the inflorescence also draws this plant very close to Dicliptera.

please identify the plant here in picture. the snaps were taken on way to Uttarakhanda.


Is it Barleria sp


I think its December plant in telugu


I think Dicliptera or Peristrophe species


Yes, this looks like certain Dicliptera, but species level identification with these low quality images are nearly impossible for those who are not familiar. However, please check probability of D. chinensis (L.) Juss.


I think appears close to Hypoestes triflora (Forssk.) Roem. & Schult.  as per images and details herein.


 

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Wildflowre%20ID-Lava-%20north%20bengal-%20Oct08-%20792.jpg
here is my 2nd request for the day.

After cropping all and putting them together, I noticed that a lot of the wildflowers are either purple or blue. Is there a reason for that?


Could be  Dicliptera bupleuroides, not sure though. You can check this out:

Thank you again. The link opens up an illustration of Dicliptera bupleuroides from which I really have very little knowledge to know whether it is the same as the photo.


May be Hypoestes triflora (Forssk.) Roem. & Schult.  as per images and details herein.

This plant was found growing wild along with other chickweeds at Ward lake areaShillong.
Looks like some Dicliptera sp.?
Family: Acanthaceae
Date/Time: 13th Nov./ 01:30PM
Location: Ward lake premises, Shillong, Meghalaya.
Habitat: Wild
Plant habit: Herb
Height: 50 to 60cm,
Leaves ovate, distantly toothed margin, leaves almost sessile,

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


Does look like Dicliptera, but inflorescence is very strange, have some similarity with D. chinensis (L.) Juss., but have differences too!


Any Dicliptera bupleuroides ?  See the link

The foliage is not clear in the photographs.


see Peristrophe sp. also.


Any chance of Hypoestes triflora (Forssk.) Roem. & Schult.


This is Hypoestes triflora (Frossk.) Roem. & Schult. to me.


Catalogue of Life lists one Hypoestes triflora var. pedunculata N. P. Balakrishnan from Meghalaya.

Peristrophe, Dicliptera, Hypoestes !!!

https://www.jstor.org/stable/20443321?read-now=1&refreqid=excelsior%3A02e3d79e9ffc9cc7a9acd50aa7bdd49d&seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents


Is ID doubtful … ?


No, … It is not the ID.

It is the latest advances in taxonomy, we have to keep pace with.

Within last 5 years what used to be Peristrophe, changed to Dicliptera. And Hypoestes differs from Dicliptera in Anther structure only, I read today in the link I quoted… which I think may not be appreciable without a magnifying glass. What a common man wd do in such a fast moving world.
