Two images taken by Krishan Lal at Nahan c. 800m, H.P. – which he considered to be Campanula benthamii.
Neither Flowers of the Himalaya nor its Supplement cover this species.
Neither does ‘Flora Simlensis’ or ‘Flora Lahaul-Spiti’.
Stewart records this (C.canescens as a synonym) in Kashmir @ 550-2700m.
Enumeration of the Flowering Plants of Nepal gives a distribution of Afghanistan to Bhutan, India, Sri Lanka and Myanamar.  West & Central Nepal @ 300-1100m.
I wonder if it is known in Uttarakhand?
I have a copy of the printed Campanulaceae for Pakistan (E.Nasir, 1984) which covers this species. He describes it as a plant of the plains and foothills. 
Krishan’s images of the flowers match in terms of the shape and hairiness of the calyces. Pity he took no photos of the habit of the plant nor foliage.
As to the name?  The Plant List has neither C.benthamii nor C.canescens…….


It is a syn. of Campanula dimorphantha as per details herein.


Thanks for drawing my attention to C.benthamii now being
a synonym of C.dimorphantha.

Campanula pallida Wall. ?? 


It sent me on deeper investigation I did not find any observation from plains at Campanula pallida, although it appears quite close.
I found only Campanula benthamii Wall. ex Kitam. in Flora of Madhya Pradesh: Chhatarpur and Damoh By G. P. Roy, which is a synonym of Campanula dimorphantha
Flora of Pakistan gives both species with keys. What sets it apart is ‘flowers in clustered branched racemes’ in Campanula dimorphantha
Flora of Pakistan gives habitat of Campanula benthamii Wall. ex Kitamura as a plant of the plains and foothills and of Campanula pallida as mountainous regions & foothills.
Checklist of Nepal gives habitat of Campanula benthamii Wall. ex Kitamura as 300-1100 m and of Campanula pallida as 1000-4500 m.
