The small alpine Potentilla described as Potentilla sibbaldii Haller.f. in Flora of British India has gone either as Sibbaldia procumbens var. procumbens (eFlora Pakistan; eFlora China) or S. cuneata Hornem ex Kuntze. The Plant list treats P. sibbaldii described in FBI (synonym of Sibbaldia parviflora Willd.) as distinct from P. sibbaldii of Haller.f. (synonym of S. procumbens)
We thus have three plants to account for, luckily two are described in eFlora of China.
Sibbaldia cuneata: Stems erect or ascending, epicalyx equalling calyx; petals equalling or longer than calyx
Sibbaldia procumbens var. procumbens: Stems prostrate or ascending; epicalyx much shorter than calyx; petals shorter than sepals.
Sibbaldia parviflora: Much like S. procumbens but densely downy and appearing Grey
There are two plants uploaded in our database. One by me as S. procumbens var. procumbens. This should be S. cuneataefi thread
The second by … uploaded as Sibbaldia cuneata should be S. parviflora- efi thread
… has perhaps correctly identified his plant as S. parvifloraefi thread

Fabaceae Herb for id from way to Hemkund sahib
This was about midway between HS and Ghangriya


R U sure, Is it some Fabaceae member? In my point of view it look more similar to Sibbaldia cuneata or Potentilla cuneata. need more close up picture of inflorescence, so its identity can enlighten.


Yes … Sorry its my blunder mistake. After observing originals it is Clearly Sibbaldia cuneata


Forwarding again for validation please in view of another thread.

Sibbaldia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)

Sibbaldia cuneata ABJUL2017/15 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (9)
I photographed this plant on two consecutive weeks when I hiked to Triund and beyond. I started seeing the plant just below Triund at about 2850m and continued seeing it till 3300m. Reading previous discussions on the group, I paid attention to the epicalyx/calyx and petal/sepal relationships. I think this should be Sibbaldia cuneata. Please confirm.
Sibbaldia cuneata

Triund and above, Dharamshala, HP
2850-3300m
03-04, 10-11 July 2017


I think matches with images of Sibbaldia cuneata in earlier thread at ANJUN39/40 Sibbaldia sp. for identification (Churdhar Trip 39)
