These tiny flowers (about 1-2cm) are growing everywhere on the mountainsides. The central part is pale green, not as bright as that of a fleabane or a daisy (it belongs to the general daisy/aster/sunflower tribe). I take it to be Nepal Myriactis but please correct me if I am wrong.

VOF Week: Myriactis wightii at VOF:
I think this one is Myriactis wightii (Family: Asteraceae) at VOF.

May be Myriactis javanica????

I think it matches with images at Myriactis nepalensis Less.


VoF Week :: DV :: 04 AUG 12 – 0959 :: aster herb along Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail:
4 AUG 12
Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail … about 7900 ft

Habitat: mountain slope
Habit: herb, about 70 – 80 cm high; flower about 10 – 12 mm across

I hope Myriactis wallichii

Yes …, This is Genus Myriactis. Since the plant is not very clear I cannot say which species but most probably it seems to be wallichii as … has stated.

Leaves don’t appear to agree well with Myriactus wallichii, at least in this one link
Also …  plant looks more slender. How about Myriactis nepalensis ?

I think matches with images at Myriactis nepalensis Less.
