These pics were again recorded from Panipat, I hope they too belong to Laggera aurita (fruiting stage), kindly help to confirm the id….

Reference … Post

I think yes



I hope I am correct in identifying this as Pseudoconyza viscosa (Mill.) D’ Arcy in Phytologia. 25 (5): 281. 1973 (Syn.: Laggera aurita (L.f.) C. B. Clarke), shot from Panipat on April 25, 2012.


I agree with … on the identification. I too have one question regarding the nomenclature. According to the plant list Pseuduconyza viscosa has been mentioned as a synonym of Laggera aurita. So which name should be considered to be the correct one?


I am attaching herewith the pics recorded from Panipat, of Laggera aurita in flowering stage, this is a common plant here, slightly aromatic… I will send the later stage pics in a separate mail, kindly confirm the id….

Thanks … Nice upload


Thanks sir for confirmation and liking..

Found this 2 to 3 ft. hairy herb on roadside, in Singur (Hooghly).


Received the ID – Blumea viscosa (Mill.) V.M.Badillo


Thanks … for providing the id received..


It appears to me that it is the same plant as in … post

Bengal Plants describes four Laggera species – 1) L. flava Benth. 2) L. alata Sch.-Bip. 3) L. pterodonta Benth. 4) L. aurita Sch.-Bip.

-I usually get confused between Laggera and Blumea.This post have removed my doubts, I hope someday I will find Blumea posted.


-it is often difficult to tell apart some genera. Here is one species of Blumea which was uploaded by me and identified as B. laciniata after a long discussion.

The plants of Blumea are mostly with yellow heads, Lagger much paler lilac in colour.

Asteraceae Fortnight Part 2-Discoid heads- 09062013MR01 a wild plant from Pune for ID-MR05 : Attachments (3). 8 posts by 4 authors. pic taken on 20/03/2013. requesting identification of a roadside wild plant at Pune. Pardon me if I have placed it under the wrong family. 


I think the pictures are not very clear. Perhaps we might get a new set of pictures from the same plant.


… if I cross the road again I will look for the plant


Please check Laggera aurita Sch.-Bip., which has pinkish/purplish heads. – /species/a—l/ar/asteraceae/blumea/pseudoconyza-viscosa


Many thanks for the help. the plant does look like Laggera aurita  as you have suggested.

Please help identify this weed of Compositae family


Any Blumea sp.?


It may be Blumea obliqua; are the leaves amplexicaul?


Thank you … for the possible ID. The leaves are not amplexicaul.


To me appears close to images at Blumea viscosa (Mill.) V.M.Badillo



 

/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Asteraceae-7.jpg

Asteraceae member:  1 correct image.

sorry for the picture quality.
I have collected this plant from Kalyangad, Satara district; Maharasthra.
however i have also seen this plant at Matheran, Mahabaleshwar of Maharshtra in sporadic distribution.
Height: about 3 feet
Leaves: spinescent margins. variables sized leaves.

pl help me in id


it can be Laggera_aurita from asteraceae


quite possible Laggera aurita has pink inflorescence and is aromatic


Thanks a lot. Your suggestions about Laggera aurita is quite matching with my specimen which i have briefly described as below:

Habit: Upto 3.5 ft high, suffructicose. Stem: Cylindrical, Striated, yellowish, old stem sparsely hairy, Younger stems thickly hairy. Leaves: Lower leaves lyrate, deeply lobed, spinescent margins, 12-15 x 8-10 cm, Upper leaves variable, smaller, elliptic, sometimes spathulate, serrate with spinescent tips 2-3 x 1-2 cm. Flowers: Corymbose, heads 0.5 cm across, colourless (I have seen this plant in April 12. As per the Maharashtra flora the Laggera aurita has flowering time in November-December and it is believed to have pinkish heads). Involucral bracts greenish, multiseriate, outermost bracts are smallest in size. Achenes oblanceolate, ribbed with crown of long pappus hairs ie. about 3-4 times of length of achene. Therefore, I can conclusively identify my specimen as Laggera aurita.


Images appears to be from different species and does not match with images at Blumea viscosa


it looks like Laggera aurita (Willd.) Scgh.-Bip.


Thanks, … May be. But 2nd image is different.


Yes …, the leaves are different, as in Laggerra the lower leaves (not rosette leaves) on the main stem are different and upper leaves are with auricular bases. hence i feel it is Laggerra aurita.

It appears to be Blumea mollis. Please Identify.

Pl. always mention time and place of the photos.
Pl. check Blumea paniculata (Willd.) M.R.Almeida as per comparative images at Blumea

It seems leaf and floral colour are different from Blumea paniculata


Collected in Feb 2018, Ramannapet, Telangana.
Flowers are pink coloured.

I still think closer to images at Blumea paniculata (Willd.) M.R.Almeida as per comparative images at Blumea
However, I do not know if there is any similar species in the area.

Flowering from Dec-march
Collected from telangana in Feb

Leafing pattern indicates to Blumea sinuata (Lour.) Merr.!


Appears to be Laggera aurita as per IIIMGBIFPlant illustrationsFlora of Karntaka


It is Blumea only


Yes, it is Blumea viscosa

14 images.
ID please (Asteraceae)
Bhandup, Maharashtra
3 feet tall herb (Probably suffruticose) Branched from below main branches give rise to small branchlets ( Branchlets with small leaves) stems and leaves pubescent leaves alternate

achene 1 mm across black with sparse short hairs pappus 1 seriate white


Blumea viscosa (Mill.) V.M.Badillo ??


Thank you so much, sir, I think it is now called as Conyza aurita, Blumea viscosa and Laggera aurita by many botanists but now on POWO it is called as Pseudoconyza viscosa (Mill.) D’Arcy


.


 
Wild Plant for ID : Nasik : 23MAR21 : AK-04: 3 images.
A small wild plant seen earlier this month.


Looks like Blumea sp. !


Could not find a match as per comparative images at Blumea

Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Inuleae

Clicked in early stage, still in budding difficult to recite species.


It is not Blumea



Thanks for the efforts taken in identifying this plant.
I had thought of Blumes too initially. Also thought it was close to Blumea obliqua.
But the leaves were not aromatic.
I was told the plant has a bad insect-like smell.
Adding one picture taken later, I found the flowers are not blooming more than this.

Hope it helps.
1 image.


Any chance with B.laciniata


The plant did not have yellow flowers.
Still our experts can check for your suggested id.

Pseudoconyza viscosa (Mill.) D’ Arcy ?? Syn : Blumea viscosa (Mill.) D’ Arcy


This should be Pseudoconyza viscosa (Mill.) D’ Arcy (=Laggera aurita (L. fil.) Sch. Bip. ex C. B. CI.)
