Forwarding again for Id assistance please.

Appears like Pluchea but the inflorescence is axillary.

Dear Vinayaraj ji, Girish ji,
Thank you very much for ID my plant.  If it is dioecious, then resembles to Homonoia retusa, only number of leaf nerves having difference.  Locals said that it is widely collected as a substitute for R. aquatica.  With kind regards, Sam.

Yes, looks different as per images at
https://efloraofindia.com/2013/11/18/homonoia-retusa/
Also looks different from images at
https://efloraofindia.com/2011/03/31/suregada/

Anyway, appears to be some Euphorbiaceae member from Idukki, Kerala.

Dear Garg ji, Girish ji, Vinayaraj ji,
Thank you very much for sharing links. Please clarify is it dioecious or not.
An old man said it's Malayalam names same to H. retusa mentioned in efi.  With kind regards, Sam.

This looks like Homonoia only but I am unable to identify the species.

I think it is Homonia retusa although leaf apex is a little unusual.
Thank you Garg ji for putting all the images together. It is off-putting having to open one or just a few photos per email.

Radha
