ID Request?? — en-route Guntarao – GHNP – PKA87 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)

Seen this small herb en-route Guntarao at GHNP at an altitude of approx 3200m.
Could this be some Gentianaceae sp..

Yes a species of Swertia. Need to be checked for tetramerous species.

Appears close to images at Swertia tetragona (Edgew.) Clarke in Hook. f. though with some variations as per comparative images at Swertia.

On further checking, it is more closer to images at Lomatogonium carinthiacum (Wulfen) A.Braun


Kalatope id swertia 4 – al300911: Another Swertia sp. from Kalatope,

Location Kalatope, Chamba
Altitude 2100 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild/periphery of the fields
Plant height 20 inches
Flowers and leaf dimension as per photos

May not be a Swertia as glands are missing
Perhaps Lomatogonium carintiacum, but needs confirmation.

How does one confirm it sir…??

Could be Swertia angustifolia, not sure though

Habit and shape of leaves suggest Lomatogonium spathulatum

Lomatogonium carinthiacum (Wulfen) A.Braun ?

I think you may be right as per GBIF.
