Comparison photos of Soliva anthemifolia and Soliva pterosperma reported from Pakistan ..hope these are helpful for better understanding.. Thank you

Thanks, … I think larger one is Soliva pterosperma here.

no Sir smaller one is Soliva pterosperma and larger is anthemifolia

Thanks, … What about achenes ?

lobed achinal wings are of Soliva pterosperma and corky margins are of S. anthemifolia.. Spine (style which becomes hard at maturity) of S. pterosperma is sharp and hard while of S. anthemifolia is soft and harmeless.

Pl. go through Soliva (‎‎‎‎‎Asteraceae (Compositae)‎) page with images of species (done by me) in efloraofindia.

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, it will be really nice.

Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
