May I request you to post high res. images to check the details as per the following:
Two species found in India are very close as per keys in Flora of China:

8 (7) Bracts 1- or 3-veined; calyx teeth linear to triangular-lanceolate Gomphostemma parviflorum
+ Bracts inconspicuously 1- or 3-veined; calyx teeth linear Gomphostemma crinitum
Do you have the keys?



3 high res. images.


I think it should be Gomphostemma niveum as per GBIF specimens- one and two.
Looks different from images at Gomphostemma parviflorum
