Earlier under Cynoglossum or Paracaryum now Hackelia, having much broader leaves than either

As the leaves are distinctly cordate, so it should be Hackelia macrophylla

Boraginaceae Week: Hackelia macrophylla (Brand) I. M. Johnston from Dachhigam, Kashmir: Hackelia macrophylla (Brand) I.M. Johnston in Contr. Gray. Herb. 68:45. 1923

Syn: Cynoglossum macrophyllum Royle ex Benth.; Lappula macrophylla Brand
Spotted this plant for the first time in Kashmir. The species is easily separated from more commoner Hackelia uncinata by more robust habit, larger flowers (13-16 mm across white in colour with blue or purplish spots as base base, lower cauline leaves cordate at base, up to 15 cm long, and leaves glabrous on upper surface.
Photographed from Dachhigam, Kashmir. in May, 2012,
