Please identify the stobilanthus species
Strobilanthes consanguineus ??
Looks different from images at Strobilanthes consanguinea
Could not find a match as per comparative images at Strobilanthes
This is Strobilanthes canarica
I agree that it doesn’t look right for S. consanguinea but I don’t know the South Indian species very well so am reluctant to suggest an alternative. S. consanguinea is said to be quite variable.
To me looks different from Strobilanthes canarica per specimens in GBIF and publication at Download PDF – Journal of Threatened Taxa
It looks different. Not S. canarica for sure. It is found only in higher altitudes. Iet me see more images, also the habitat, habit etc. Some times a new one
Oh I am sorry, this is of course not S. canarica, it is S. carnatica
Thanks, … Here is the GBIF Specimen.
it resembles Strobilanthes meeboldii
It is S. carnatica as confirmed by … and as per GBIF Specimen and as per A Revision of the Strobilanthes kunthiana-Group (Phlebophyllum sensu Bremekamp) (Acanthaceae) by Mark A. Carine and others- Kew Bulletin 59(1):1–25 · January 2004 (Abstract- Morphological variation in the Strobilanthes kunthiana group is examined and species delimitation problems addressed. A taxonomic revision is presented recognising ten species from peninsular India. Two new species are described, Strobilanthes gamblei Carine, J. Alexander & Scotland and S. carnatica Carine, J. Alexander & Scotland).
Sending you the publication by Carine.
I had gone through the doc, sometimes not very common specimens may not be included in the review articles; I feel the review articles are not final/supreme; further another article may be published with the additions as sub-species etc, when there is substantiated evidence that our specimen differs with them by young enthusiastic people like Anjaneyulu
Thank you so much for your explanation, …,
…, we have earlier reports from the posted area….look into the references, please…
Please dissect flowers and provide some information about plant profile,
hope that will help for conformation,
