Unid from Ladakh – TQ-Ladakh-07: A small aster-like flower, found in Nubra Valley, Ladakh, in June.
Psychrogeton andryaloides I suppose
Interestingly I had identified this for … from Lahul Spiti, seconded by …, in June 2009. I wonder why it did not reach FOI. efi thread
In fact the name was suggested by … as one of the possibilities.
The earlier flower and id did not reach FOI simply because I was not following efloraofindia discussions regularly.
PS: The currently accepted name is Erigeron poncinsii (Franch.) Botsch.

This seems to be what I previously knew as Pyschrogeton andryaloides – and is listed as such in Stewart and more up-to-date by Dickore & Klimes but now considered as Erigeron poncinsii which ‘Flowers of the Himalaya’ says is common on dry stony slopes in Ladakh and Lahoul.
