… an endemic of Western Ghats, … Senecio grahamii popularly known as sonki (Marathi: सोनकी)


Which one is this out of the following two as per link (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/search?q=Senecio+grahamii):
Name Status Confi­dence level Source
Senecio grahamii Hook.f. Unresolved L TICA
Senecio grahamii Benth. Synonym M TICA

Our plant is S. grahamii Hook.f. now correctly known as S. bombayensis Balakr.
S. grahamii Benth. is a Mexican species now considered as synonym of Roldana barba-johannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell

Since S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being a later homonym, hence its correct name is now S. bombayensis Balakr.

Nice photographs … Looks like Senecio grahamii . Wait for more comments on its ID.


Not sure about the identification, but if the identification is correct, the accepted name would be S. bombayensis Balkr. as S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being later homonym of S. grahamii Benth. a Mexican plant (itself now synonym of Roldana barbajohannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell).

Yes …, Sonki looking very beautiful ….. the most common flower in Sahyadri ..


Just to set records straight

Our plant is S. grahamii Hook.f. now correctly known as S. bombayensis Balakr.
S. grahamii Benth. is a Mexican species now considered as synonym of Roldana barba-johannis (DC.) H.Rob. & Brettell

Since S. grahamii Hook.f. is an illegitimate name, being a later homonym, hence its correct name is now S. bombayensis Balakr.

This small plant was by the roadside in the Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.

Is it possible to ID. Is this some Asteraceae?


A Senecio species, possibly S. bombayensis



Saw these flowers near Rajgad near Pune, MH in December 2014.
Requested to please ID.

I tried but o luck. Only subject expert could help I guess!


Senecio


Senecio edgeworthii or Senecio bombayensis ??


Is the back of leaf white?

Then it may be Senecio bombayensis. Please check.


Thanks so much … for the ID.
Attaching a cropped pic of what may be the undesride of the leaf. It does seem to be white.
