I could not tell the difference between
renanthera Vietnamensis and renanthera puchella ,
could someone point out to me the key differences to tell them apart?

Good question!

The only differences I see between the two main photos are the color of the anther cap, but that could be cultural.

Have you thought of the fact the photos could have been mixed up and show the same species ?
if you google renanthera vietnamesis or puchella for images separately , they seem to show the same kind of flowers.

I found the article on researchgate.net (by AOS magazine) for vietnamensis ,but I haven't be able to locate a description of puchella .
