Interesting find. Looks like a Lamiaceae member.

… Any chance of Orthosiphon ? or.. Plectranthus ?

… has indicated that this could be Anisochilus verticillatus..

… is correct 

Thanks a lot, …, for id of … plant.
May I request you to pl. have a look at this plant & help us in the id of this Anisochilus species pl.

This is not Anisochilus adenanthus (Syn: Anisochilus verticillatus Hook.f.) as per feedback in another thread: Fwd: identification of Anisochilus

Anisochilus dysophylloides Benth. = Coleus dysophylloides (Benth.) A.J.Paton, 

the one with the simple unbranched inflorescence is Anisochilus plantagineus Hook. f. = Coleus plantagineus (Hook.f.) A.J.Paton

This will be Anisochilus plantagineus Hook.f. as per references herein.

Pl. correct in FOI.

Anisochilus dysophylloides Benth. is different as per images and references herein.

Thanks a lot … for sorting this out.

This plant is Coleus plantagineus (Hook.f.) A.J.Paton 

Synonym : Anisochilus plantagineus Hook.f.
