Looks like Hygrophilla auriculata ?
To me it appears like some Strobilanthes species.
This is a species of Eranthemum, probably Eranthemum pulchellum
Thanks, … But I did not find the shape of the corolla like this in any Eranthemum species. What other genus can it be?
I still think this is a species of Eranthemum. The two exserted stamens, and the subequally 5-lobed corolla and the distinctive bracts strongly suggest this genus. Not all species have a narrowly cylindrical corolla tube including E. tubiflorum from the Assam region. I am not sure of the species. More photographs, perhaps of a pressed specimen where the whole inflorescence shape is clear might be helpful.
