Thanks, …. But I want high resolution images of 2nd or 4th image.

These are the only images I am having. Flowering time is over.

We will have to wait for next season …

Do you resize all your original images and keep them without keeping the original high resolution images ?

I resize them when I upload images. Attaching images in original.

Two species found in India are very close as per keys in Flora of China:
8 (7) Bracts 1- or 3-veined; calyx teeth linear to triangular-lanceolate   3 Gomphostemma parviflorum
+ Bracts inconspicuously 1- or 3-veined; calyx teeth linear   5 Gomphostemma crinitum
Going through different sources and FOC illustration, I agree with … id.

Thank you … I went with …

Gomphostemma niveum: 2 high res. images
Gomphostemma niveum

Behali Reserve Forest, Biswanath, Assam, India

I think it looks different from GBIF specimens of this species.

It is Gomphostemma parviflorum Wall. ex Benth. as per images herein and as per GBIF specimens from India– one and two.

I guess you are right
