Maybe Erigeron emodi I. M. Turner (syn: Erigeron bellidioides (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) Benth. ex C. B. Clarke) as per POWO;

Erigeron acris var. multicaulis (Wall. ex DC.) C.B.Clarke ?
Plant height differs as it is more around 60cm.

No. I do not think so.

Another composite for ID from Churdhar-GS13012022-3: 6 very high res. images.
Here is another Composite for ID, photographed from Churdhar, Sirmor, Himachal Pradesh, 26-5-2015.

Last image also from same sp.??

Pl. check Erigeron.

Yes …, this have especially uploaded to show difference in Involucre bracts.

I think it is close to images at Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. except for the last image.

All images should be of Erigeron multiradiatus (Lindl. ex DC.) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke

Erigeron annuus seems alright but not E. multiradiatus which has much larger heads

But phyllaries do not match.

See phyllaries of E.annus from GBIF observations:

I think this is Erigeron emodi (heads solitary or few on long stalks compared to many in corymbose panicles in E.annuus) as per POWO specimen- one and two and three

I think phyllaries also match with the specimens above.
Flora of Bhutan gives the following keys:
4. Stems 15—45cm; involucres 1.5—2.5cm across; rays numerous. 120—200; ligules 8-15mm .  . .. 4. E. multiradiatus
+ Stems 10-15cm; involucres 1-1.5cm across; rays fewer. 50-100. ligules c 10mm . .. 5. E. bellidioides (syn. of Erigeron emodi I. M. Turner)

Yes …, I am also inclined towards E. bellidioides now E. emodi.

This one was again shot from Chakrata region..can this be Erigeron annuus?

Not E. annuus, I think

Erigeron emodi I.M.Turner Syn : Erigeron bellidioides (Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke ??

I agree with you.


Erigeron emmodi vs. Erigeron karvinskianus .:
I think images of Erigeron emodi and Erigeron karvinskianus looks same.

The leaves of  Erigeron karvinskianus are generally with 1–2 distal pairs of pointed teeth or lobes. The leaves of Erigeron emodi are entire.
