Fwd: Senecio jacquemontianus (Decne.) Benth ex Hook.f. Now Ligularia jacquemontiana. Is this correct? : 2 posts by 1 author. Attachments (1)
I attach a great image taken by Oleg Polunin of this plant in Kashmir.
Flowers of Himalaya knew it as Senecio jacquemontianus gregarious and common on alpine meadows in Kashmir @ 3000-4000m from Pakistan to Kashmir. The authors thought it was not easy to distinguish from Senecio wallichii (found from Central Nepal to Arunachal Pradesh.
Stewart records it as gregarious on lower alpine meadows in Kashmir with the roots used to adulterate ‘Kuth’.
But Ligularia jacquemontiana is not an accepted name in ‘The Plant List’.
Kindly identify this herb with yellow flowers photographed in June 2017 on the trail to Manimahesh at the height of about 2200 metres.
Some Senecio species (Asteraceae).
I could not match with any Senecio species so far available in efi site.
Can it be a Ligularia species as per the following? :
Leaves match with Ligularia species at the given link but I have some doubts about the inflorescence.
Though not satisfied, but keeping it as
/species/a—l/ar/asteraceae/asteroideae/senecioneae/ligularia/ligularia-fischeri for the time being.
Ligularia jacquemontiana I hope
I guess you are right …
