Multiple fruits in one calyx. may be other sp. ?

I think it is a species of Gomphostemma

I feel it should be Gomphostemma mastersii as per keys at MS,Nov.,2021/02 Gomphostemma sp. ? for id. as per GBIF specimens (onetwo and three).
I think both the following posts should also be the same:

It may be Gomphostemma (oblongum?) of Lamiaceae

Gomphostemma species so far in efi 

May I request you to pl. post the original images (and additional images, if you have) to see the details like calyx etc.
I am not satisfied with id of either Gomphostemma ovatum Wall. ex Benth. (GBIF) or Gomphostemma melissifolium Wall. ex Benth. (GBIF).
What are the other species mentioned in your AREA?

But detailed image are required for confirmation.
