Is it Jacobaea raphanifolia but the leaves looked like Senecio graciliflorus

This species is not reported from Western Himalayas.

It is a species of Senecio for sure. Even a few species now placed under Jacobaea (incl. J. raphanifolia) were formerly placed under Senecio. The above plant from head size and leaves may perhaps be Senecio
, but this needs to be confirmed.

… This seems very different from what I thought to be Senecio jacquemontianus…. attaching that file too..

You may be right about your this plant being S. jacquemontianus. Your first plant has to be explored further.

You pics no *080511_1118.jpg may also be cremanthodium arnicoides*
*Firstly posted may be Senecio chrysanthemoides

The first plant is closer to S. chrysanthemoides which shows a lot of variation. I have also photographed similar plant from Gulmarg, which I initially (but wrongly) thought S. jacquemontianus, but thanks to…. I have still to fix it, refraining to call it S. chrysanthemoides because heads are about 2.5 cm across, whereas they are scarcely exceeding 1.5 cm in S. chrysanthemoides

The second plant clearly belongs to Ligularia section of former Senecio. I can’t count more than 8-10 ligules, so it can’t be S. arnicoides (now Cremanthodium arnicoides) which has larger heads (often 6 cm across) and 15-30 ligules. Closest is S. jacquemontianus which has 12-15 ligules. In this genus and other side close up is very important, because involucre bracts number is crucial in species identification.



Not Agree with Senecio grahami

Ray florets seen here are only 5

Leaves are not very clear but from few upper ones, looks like S. nudicaulis. Lateral view of head should help.

… apologies – only these photos … happy with ID to genus level.

Pls Pics of leaves if any

Senecio sp.

Could not get to leaves of this plant. Next trip I hope to.
Many thanks … for validating the genus.


VOF Week: Asteraceae herb for id from the Valley: This was shot from the valley.. can this be Senecio laetus??? I fear these are the only pics with me…

I don’t think so, although open heads should help. I don’t see any ray florets.

please upload if you have photograph in flowering.

Looks like Saussurea costus ‘Kuth’

Looking at unopened heads to me it looks like Senecio sp of section Ligularia.

Sorry I had no other picture of this plant in flowering stage. Although I have pictures of Ligularia and I will upload them also in seperate thread.

Looking at unopened heads to me it looks like Senecio sp of section Ligularia.



is it Senecio edgeworthii?: Photographed this Sunday at Bhimashankar

I guess we should leave it behind since it seems not possible to ID with this single image !
