Please help identify this spreading bush seen in wild at Dhavlas, Maharashtra.
Photographed 4Oct13.

Not a bush, just a tiny herb spreading not more than 10cm. This would be Glassocardia nummularifolia of Asteraceae. Request once again to give sizes for ID, otherwise it’s only a guess.

Sir you have r t ly identified it

Glassocardia sps for sure.

its may be Glossocardia boswellia or setosa
