the current plant is not Cyananthus lobatus but it seems the other
plant in the link is indeed correctly identified.
Thanks for pointing out and apologies for misidentification.

Yes, Pankaj ji
I admire your observation power. I have never seen this genus but from text and photographs it is clear that leaves of C. lobatus are distinctly lobed towards apex and corolla tube much shorter. Here the leaves are smaller and entire and corolla tube longer.
It appears to be C. microphyllus (I am not sure about taxonomic status of C. integer).
