Family: Scrophulariaceae
Location: Rohtang Pass, Himachal Paradesh

This is Pedicularis oederi var oederi as it has 10-20 pairs of leaf segment, it its more than that (25-30pairs) then its var multipinna.

Thanks for the information…..I knew by the way, but there s general tendency by me to use without variety if the plant is original… It is
understood if you dont write the name of the variety.

You are quite knowledgeable about the Himalayan flora hence this is common that you know it !!
This for other who are not aware of it.

When the discussion is about the typical variety, there is no need to mention the variety name. But when you talk of also other variety/varieties, then the typical variety name has to be mentioned. 
We need not mention the variety name ‘indicus’ for Hemidesmus indicus, when we are not talking about H. indicus var. pubescens
Am i correct?

I accept … reliable comment on varieties and conclusion for this particular discussion.

Yes … thats what I wass trying to say but may be my words were not appropriate.

Both of you have explained it in a proper way Thanks again.
