Please provide identity for this herb, recorded from Cherrapunji in Meghalaya..
As the flowers are yet to open, hard to ascertain what it comes out to be.. an input led me to genus Microchirita..
Thanks, … I do not know whether we have something on it in efi site.
Comparative images available at Gesneriaceae
Didymocarpus is another possibility.
It is D.hookerii as per Dipankar ji.
