This herb was shot from Gori valley area, I hope this can be Gnaphalium hypoleucum.. though pics are inadequate to reach to any conclusion..


Looks a good match  for Pseudognaphalium hypoleucum (DC.) Hilliard & B.L.Burtt !



This one was shot from Chakrata area.. perhaps this is Gnaphalium affine.. kindly validate/correct the id..


Nice photographs …


This is close to Pseudognaphalium hypoleucum as per keys in Flora of Pakistan and Flora of China and as per the specimens of Pseudognaphalium hypoleucum from India as per GBIF– onetwothreefourfive

Pseudognaphalium luteo-album (L.) Hillard & B.L. Burtt (Gnaphalium luteo-album L.) is a common spring annual in Pantnagar.


Of the two species described in FBI var. multiceps is now correctly known as P. affine, the other with leaves green on upper surface and brownish heads is var. pallidum. Would P. luteo-album be still valid for our area?, or we call above as P. affine?


However, Flora of China gives its range (Pseudognaphalium luteoalbum (Linnaeus) Hilliard & B. L. Burtt) in India too as does GRIN.

Experts may pl. look into it & clarify.


I think this will be Pseudognaphalium affine (D. Don) Anderberg as per images and details herein.

Yes … Keys in Flora of China are convincing.
