Henckelia is new name for Chirita sp.

What are the members reported from Gesneriaceae.

Chirita hamosa, C.macrophylla, C.oblongifolia and C.pumila are recorded in Mizoram

Pl. post better images clearly showing the calyx.
Nearest out of the four mentioned by you, I can find is Henckelia grandifolia A.Dietr. as per GBIFSpecimen and POWO  and Plant illustrations
