Tabish could be right, Kluggia notoniana or Rhynchoglossum notonianum
can be distinguished by larger darker flowers and winged calyx as
against R.obliqum which has small flowers and calyx which doesn't have
any pronounced wings. However to know conclusively one has to check
the number of perfect stamens. R.notonianum has 4 perfect stamens
while R.obliqum has 2.
