If I had to guess I would say, Wulfenia amherstiana.


Yes, you are correct. Its currently valid name is Wulfeniopsis amherstiana D.Y. Hong


This lithophyte was shot from Chakrata area this week.. (14.8.13)

Now placed in Plantaginaceae

Nice shots. Correctly identified. I was familiar with this 25 years ago in forest above Manali, H.P. – then Wulfenia amherstiana.
