    Looks like a Barleria cf. cristata with an unusual flower... (Barleria used to have 5 petals, while this one has only 4)

    Lila you are a genius.
    I have been searching for a 4 petal flower. Duh!
    Trust me to find an odd flower!
    I have even taken pics of Barleria cristata before on Santa Cruz.....Solomon Islands.January 2014.

    I found this video on www which shows the exact same features...



    Many many thanks.
    That is one less to worry about.

    Found this on www...another which appears to have 4 petals.
