Did not find distribution in Karnataka.
Any possibility of Anaphalis margaritacea (L.) Benth. ?? However could not find distribution in KT.
Appears close to images at Anaphalis contorta (D.Don) Hook.f., but I do not find any distribution in the area.

Anaphalis ¿ species ? … (family: Asteraceae)
Pl. Check comparative images at EFI.
I think it does not match with any species as per comparative images at Anaphalis
…, please check with Anaphalis bournei.
Thanks very much, …
I have a strong feeling that it must be Anaphalis lawii (Hook.f.) Gamble
