Kailas Manasarovar Route::Inula royleana NSJ-SEP16/13 : 8 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)
Inula royleana for validation. Photo taken near Gunji, Aug 2016, approx altitude 11000 feet.
Sorry, this is not Inula royleana. I was immediately suspicious because as far I know, this species has not been recorded outside of Pakistan or Kashmir, typically in forests or shrubberies (I have seen it in the latter above Khelanmarg). I shall post images of this species to add to those from Kashmir I can confirm as that species on this site.
As for this, at first look it seems to be Inula grandiflora, which I know from Kulu Valley and Lahaoul (Flowers of HImalaya say it is quite common in Kashmir Valley). So this represents a new species for efi.
It is Inula orientalis Lam. (syn: Inula grandiflora), already uploaded by …
The two similar looking species are easily differentiated as under:
I. orientalis: Leaf tip acute, margin serrated; ;involucre bracts linear-lanceolate, not more than 2 mm broad, up to 11 mm long; heads 3-8 cm across; ligules up to 18 mm long
I. royleana: Leaf tip and teeth obtuse, Involucre bracts broader, foliaceous, outer up to 6 mm broad; heads 5-10 cm across; ligules up to 35 mm long.
