Caryophyllaceae Week: Cerastium dahuricum from Apharwat, Kashmi:  Cerastium dahuricum Fisch. in Sprengel, Pungill. Pl.

Perennial herb with weak stems, scarcely branched leaves up to 7 cm long and up to 3 cm broad, ovate-lanceolate, base amplexicaule; pedicels much longer than calyx; sepals 8-10 mm; capsule twice as long as calyx with 10 revolute teeth at tip. Photographed from Apharwat Kashmir in July, 3200 m alt., growing among low shrubs.
