Please identify this Peristrophe (Acanthaceae) specimen from South Andaman Island, A  &N islands. I  compared it with P. montana and
P.paniculata but not matching. The specimen is more matching with P.strigosa, an endemic species from Hainan (China)

To me looks slightly different from images at Dicliptera cuneata Nees
May I request you to pl. let me know what are the species of Dicliptera‎/ Peristrophe reported from your area, so that we can nail down the id.

The species of Peristrophe/ Dicleptera reported from A & N Islands are Peristrophe acuminata Nees, P. andamanica C. B. Clarke and P. montana Nees.

I think matches with high resolution specimens of Dicliptera sebastinei (syn. Peristrophe acuminata Wall. ex Nees) in gbif as per
