KAS week:: (For Identification – 03/10/2012-NJ):
Observed at Kas plateau in Sep 2009 (20/09/2009). Is it Adenoon indicum????
Flower size around 10 to 15 mm
Only two photos available

This appears to be Tricholepis radicans. Do you have more views of the flower head and leaves to ascertain the id?

Yes, it does look like some Tricholepis sp.

Also looks similar to Baccharoides anthelmintica from Mandi, uploaded by me: efi thread

I also think it to be Tricholepis radicans. I can see some linear lanceolate leaves with serrate/dentate margins. Of course size and other details are lacking to come to any conclusion. T. radicans is a very small herb may be 6 inches or so.
