Looks like Anaphalis Sp. (Asteraceae family).

I suppose Anaphalis busua

Pl. check comparative images at

To me looks different from species available so far at

 


 

May be either Anaphalis busua (Buch.-Ham.) DC.or Anaphalis royleana DC. as per images herein.

 


Looks more close to Anaphalis royleana DC. but could not decide by myself. Any other members can help ?

This is another one growing at 2750m on Phulchowki in Nepal.

Is this an Anaphalis?


Yes!


Maybe Anaphalis royleana DC.as per comparative images at Anaphalis


Yes, I believe that is correct. Especially one set of images look very similar. I will put it on my Phulchowki blog and see if at a future date someone corrects it.


So far it is not recorded at Phulchoki and no herbarium record !


I guess this is Anaphalis busua (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) DC. !


Not sure about A. busua as per the image and its morphology…

Check for A. contorta or A. royleana


Expert of Anaphalis validated as Anaphalis busua (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) DC. !


May I request you for high resolution image along with side view, for verification as per Anaphalis busua


I have two images from a place near the first image. I think this might help. It might be Anaphais royleana from the photos I saw on your eflora site.

2 images- 6 & 7 mb each.


Yes, I agree with Anaphalis busua due to decurrent base of the leaves, almost forming a wing.
