Hi Gargji & Prashantji,
I agree with you that it is not Orthosiphon pallidus, as the corolla is twice as long as the calyx.
The differentiating point between thymiflorous and rubicundus is leaf morphology. In rubicundus the leaf has very short petiole-up to 4mm or the leaf is almost sessile, and in thymiflorous petiole is longer-about 1 to 3cm.
In the photographs posted by me long petiole is distinctly seen. So I think it is Orthosiphon thymiflorous.
I am posting now photographs of a herb which I think is orthosiphon rubicundus ,as the corolla is twice as long as the calyx & the leaves are almost sessile. The photograph is taken near Kaas plateau-Satara Maharashtra , on 12-9-09.
Regards,
Geeta Samant.

If Geeta ji contention is correct, then species in the
earlier thread should also be Orthosiphon thymiflorous & not Orthosiphon rubicundus:

Is the photo in FOI site (http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Red%20Java%20Tea.html) is Orthosiphon thymiflorous or Orthosiphon rubicundus in view of discussion in this thread & in view of the views in this from Geeta Arun ji as below?:

In view of this my attachments may also be of Orthosiphon rubicundus & not Orthosiphon thymiflorous in the earlier thread:
