SK 3604 13 August 2022: 4 very high res. images.

Location: Dunai, Dolpa,  Nepal
Altitude:  2600m.
Date: 17 June 1022
Habit : Wild 
Which Lamiaceae is this ??


Colquhounia, new species?


I am also guessing it could be a Colquhounia sp. Could it be a new sp.. …?
I checked all the species but could not get a match.


To me appears to be Colquhounia coccinea Wall. only, with some colour variation.


Calyx looks different and there are no patches in the inner parts of petals.


Then it may be Colquhounia coccinea var. vestita Wall. as per Checklist of NepalPOWO and Flora of China.
Pl. confirm or otherwise.



Flower color does not match according to the description.
Enclosing image sent by Dr. Chunlei for the comparison.
May I have your opinion … ?

Flower colour can vary depending upon environmental conditions.


Yes, maybe !
