Bot. name: Saxifraga brachypoda
Really a good find
Thanks … The related S. wallichiana (S. brachypoda var. fimbriata) with fimbriate petal margins and two callosities at petal base should also be expected in the area.

I found this growing not far below the highest spot I walked to. There were three stems bearing flowers on top of a rock. I think this is Saxifraga filicaulis. Please advise

I found this at about 3100m on my way to Ilaqa. It confused me at first as the barchypoda I had photographed above Ilaqa last year looked different. Reading the description in Flowers of the Himalaya by Oleg Polunin and Adam Stainton, I think my plant is Saxifraga brachypoda only. Moss like matting, single flowers, red anthers, needle-like leaves hairy on margins, glands on flower-stalks, all point to brachypoda. My last year’s post could also be Saxifraga brachypodoidea as per the illustration here.
