This most probably a Pogostemon parviflorus.

Pogostemon hispidus (Benth.) Prain ??


Thanks, …, for the id.
To me also looks closer to Pogostemon hispidus (Benth.) Prain rather than Pogostemon parviflorus Benth. as per comparative images at Pogostemon

Please check also Pogostemon amaranthhoides, from photo not able to confirm but it is not P. parviflorus.


May I request you to pl. post high resolution image of 1st, to further check the details.

With these images I feel it is more close to Pogostemon hispidus as per specimen at MNHN rather than Pogostemon amaranthoides as per specimens at GBIF.


Pogostemon hispidus is treated as synonym of Pogostemon parviflorus, indeed it was orginally described as variety of the latter. Hence it should be confirmed whether it is P. parviflorus or P. amarantoides.
My manuscript says,
The P. amarantoides can easily be distinguished by its glabrous calyx tube and white hairs at the inner surface of the calyx teeth. In addition, it is distinguished (except from P. heyneanus Benth. and P. tuberculosus Benth.) by its much interrupted inflorescence in which internodal distance are up to 2 cm long.


Thanks, … I think high resolution image from …, should settle the issue.

However, Pogostemon parviflorus Benth. (Bangladesh; Cambodia; China South-Central; China Southeast; India; Myanmar; Vietnam) and Pogostemon hispidus (Benth.) Prain (Assam; Bangladesh; Myanmar; Thailand) are currently treated as independent species as per Catalogue of life
