Another Crepis id.. albeit a much smaller one..
Location Kalatope, Chamba

Habit herb
Habitat wild/roadside, fields
Height 2 ft

Sorry for bringing this up again…. but I think the bill of C. sancta might fit this plant??


Maybe these photos might be of some help…. (the black measure is in mm)


Sorry again for the incomplete info.. here is the photo with the basal leaf length… width of the inflorescence was 25-30 cms.. the width of the flower is obvious in the previous photo..


Achenes flattened, without beak; involucre bracts 6-8; leaves pinnatifid…………………………Crepis japonicus

This clearly explains the importance of proper display and analysis of photographs.

Hawkweed? ABAPR01/05 : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (4)

I am hazarding a guess here. Is it a Hawkweed? Youngia japonica perhaps? Please advise.

Youngia japonica?

The images are of two different plants.

The whole plant on a slope is different from the ones of which the close ups are taken.


I agree with your conclusion..this herb is Youngia japonica..


… had confirmed the identity of this plant as the Youngia japonica (earlier Crepis japonica) last year. I have made a more detailed study of this flower in February and March this year. I hope this confirms the identity beyond doubt. I haven’t seen red stigmas on any Y. japonica flower closeup online but may be that’s variable.
Here is an interesting piece;

Pl. check with comparative images at Cichorieae


I think closer to images at Crepis foetida L.  as per comparative images at Cichorieae


Crepis foetida L. is not listed in Nepal and it is not matching to any Crepis listed in Nepal.
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=108351


Youngia japonica (L.) DC.


KEW says this one is present in Nepal, can’t say altitude, – POWO
Note the name “foetida” has been struck out – herbcat
Please check if this can be your species.
Crepis foetida L. is neither present in India nor in Nepal, if KEW is correct – POWO

Launaea sp. ?


Sorry! Do not look like matching.

http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=117736


Thanks, …, Pl. check comparative images at Launaea & Cichorieae


Pl. check images of Launaea asplenifolia Hook.f.

I am afraid it does not look like matching. In this case leaves look different with papery nature whereas pics on googles looks thicker

in nature.


To me it looks close to images at Launaea asplenifolia Hook.f.
Generally lot of images which come up on google search, may be of some other species.

If you give links of the concerned page of a website where an image (seen by you on google search) is residing, it can be further analysed.


Leaves looks like little different according to the link

Youngia japonica (L.) DC. ??.
