Note on plant names:

A genetic study published in 2004 [1] on the classification of the Strobilanthinae group where the genera Strobilanthes and Hemigraphis belong, proposed a single expanded genus Strobilanthes instead of the current few genera. This proposal appeared to have been adopted in the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) website. Hence, I had updated all Hemigraphis species in my website to the corresponding Strobilanthes species names based on that from the GBIF website as of May 2020.
