Androsace sp. photographed from along Budher caves road in Chakrata in September. Looks like A. robusta but not very sure. Please help in ID.
I am also having same pics, I think this is difficult to conclude without flowers..
Pl. see A. robusta at androsaceworld
Probably A. sarmentosa (or studiosorum).
Yes it is looking like Androsace sarmentosa
It is certainly not Androsace robusta (or what was known as this). Pity images not in focus. Can you tell me the approx. elevation of the Budher Caves road?
