Sir,

It took me more than an hour to decide not to use "?" in the title of this post. So, i think this is Leucas aspera (Willdenow) Link, a small herb (less than a foot) beside rail-tracks.

Thank you,

Regards,

surajit

I am not sure, I thought it could be a Leucas species, since the flowers as well as the plant resembles the illustrations at - http://plantillustrations.org/taxa.php?id_taxon=5081.

Thank you

Regards

Thank you very much Sir.

I think I have more clear pictures of this plant, recorded sometimes later after this first upload. Will search my hard-disk and post in this thread.

Regards,

surajit

In light of upload by Karuna ji this could be L. ciliata (longer calyx lobes; hispid).

Respected Gurcharan Sir,

The problem is that learning from here, in this group, I teach, rather give opinion, to my friends in other groups, my students, (sometimes my colleagues too!). Now, I will have to recall whom did I impart knowledge regarding id of Leucas since 2013. Okay... that's my job, eFI is not at all responsible for that.

Following are the Indian sites which think what Leucas ciliata can be -
It's hard to believe that the species in this thread is same. But, you are my teacher here and I am bound to accept your verdict.

Thank you very much Sir

Regards

surajit

Dear Surajit
We on the basis of photographs can only give our opinion only, and not verdict. We learn from each other.
