Garg ji you are right it can't be L. bipartita because  pedicels, sepals and bracts are all glandular ( all glabrous in L. bipartita)
Should be L. maroccana (infl. open, flowers few, sepals lanceolate), in other species L. pinifolia infl is very dense, flowers smaller and sepals broadly ovate

I think it is not even L. maroccana as spur is much shorter, it is one and a half times as long as corolla in that species.
