Rubiaceae ?? Neanotis ?? or some other ???
I have also discussed this with … and he suggested this to be close to Oldenlandia ovatifolia but this species have much smaller hairy leaves in whorls and flower also looks different, so it’s not O.ovatifolia.
… so please check with Oldenlandia species, may be we will get something matching
… have asked to ID this plant before. I don’t think this belongs any member of the tribe Spermacocoeae (that includes genera like Hedyotis, Oldenlandia etc.). I even doubt if this plant is Rubiaceae (due to its superior ovary as seen in one of the images)
I went o the location a couple of days before but there no sight of the plant, may be it is too early. Last time it was the end of September. I shall try again in September.
I have examined the plants closely this season and after examining i came to the conclusion that it is Mitrasacme pygmaea of Loganiaceae family.
I have also posted the plant separately with more images.
