Pentasachme wallichii Wight is a small hanging herb growing near waterfalls, streams. Not common in Uttarakhand.
There was a long discussion on Pentasachme in eFI earlier
Photographed near Birthi, Pithoragarh (Uttarakhand).
I have also added the list of Indian species of Pentasachme in eFI.
Thanks …, this perhaps grows under waterfalls only..I got this in Gori valley…
