Hedyotis auricularia

On going through Nature Loves you  FRLHT  GBIF (high resolution specimens)  Flickr  IIIM  Yi Shuen flickr site, I am having doubt about the id as Exallage auricularia (L.) Bremek. (syn: Oldenlandia auricularia (L.) K.Schum.)

To me appears close to Exallage ulmifolia (Wall.) Bremek. (syn: Hedyotis lineata Roxb.) as per GBIF (High resolution specimens).
Also see

to me it looks like Spermacoce species only

Thanks, … Pl. see https://api.gbif.org/D12135329

This is a highly variable species need at least a regional revision to ascertain its range of variations.

Thanks, … To me appears close to Exallage ulmifolia (Wall.) Bremek. (syn: Hedyotis lineata Roxb.) as per GBIF (High resolution specimens).

I think Hedyotis sp. (Rubiaceae)

To me appears close to Exallage ulmifolia (Wall.) Bremek. as per images, details and references herein and as per your earlier thread at Spermacoce sp.(?) from Assam-Jan 2014

Richardia scabra L. ??

No … it’s not Richardia,
Spermacoce sp.
Check with Spermacoce ocymoides,

Yes …, it is not
But I guess it  looks different from S. ocymoides since floral tube and leaf veins are distinct.
I could not decide.

Go through Once Spermacoce latifolia too

This also looks different

Could not find a match as per comparative images at Spermacoce.

It looks to be some Neonotis species as per comparative images herein. Checked with all the species listed in the Checklist of Nepal.
Pl. see Neanotis gracilis (Hook. f.) W. H. Lewis as per GBIF– specimen.
Also see Neanotis ingrata (Wall. ex Hook. f.) W. H. Lewis as per GBIF specimens- onetwo
There are no specimens available in GBIF for Neanotis rhombicarpa T. Yamaz.
Other species are available as per comparative images at Neonotis
Closest I can go is Neanotis hirsuta (L.f.) W.H.Lewis
Flora of China says: Inflorescences terminal and/or pseudoaxillary, laxly cymose, branched to 2 or 3 orders often asymmetrically, with flowers borne separately or in glomerules of 2-5, glabrous or hirtellous; peduncle 0.8-3 cm; bracts laciniate or stipuliform, 0.5-2 mm. Flowers sessile or subsessile, floral biology unknown. Calyx glabrous to densely hirtellous; hypanthium portion obconic, ca. 1 mm; limb divided essentially to base; lobes linear-lanceolate, 1-2 mm. Corolla white, funnelform, outside glabrous; tube 3.5-4 mm, puberulent or perhaps pubescent inside; lobes ovate to triangular, 2.2-3 mm.

I guess “Corolla , funnelform ” does not match, it is rather bulged at base.

May be funneliform as per https://convolvulaceae.myspecies.info/file/119

Exallage ulmifolia (Wall.) Bremek. Syn : Hedyotis lineata Roxb.  ??
This sp. is  listed in the book of Karnali Province!

Yes, this is the right id as per images at Exallage ulmifolia
