This one was shot from Morni Hills, Haryana and Gori Valley, Uttrakhand.. I hope this one is Inula cappa….. please validate/correct…


All the features of Inula seen here.

Flower heads usually with both yellow ray florets and yellow disc florets;

involucral bracts in many rows, green leafy. Fruit angled. Pappus hair simple.

I also think this is Inula cappa as you have rightly mentioned.

Find one more picture from Gori valley..

This unique shrub to small tree eber of Asteraceae from Chakauri in Uttarkhand was lying unidentified for a long.  
Thanks … i for uploading Gochnatia spectabilis (D.Don) Less. (=Leucomeris spectabilis D.Don).  
I hope it is the same in fruiting stage. Pl. validate.


I have doubts Sir.

Branches are thicker, leaves entire in G.spectabilis.


I would have gone for Inula cappa


It is sure Inula Cappa and Iam agree with …


Thanks a lot …

I found this plant with yellow flowers growing here at about 1800m. Please help with ID.

are those berries or buds?


forgot to ask: the leaves sort of wooly?

if they were then its most likely Solanum mauritianum,

a pesky wide ranging weed.

I am surprised it went up that far up, and in that cold.

all that if my surmise is correct.

lets see what experts think

In the mean time a close of the berry bunch will be great, if you have one.


Thank you … I photographed it with a tele-lens as it was on a precarious slope. I am including a crop here which is of a fairly decent quality. If this doesn’t help, I’ll walk over to it this afternoon and get more details if I can. I haven’t yet seen another specimen.


but its slope be careful
no need to be a hero for sake of a weed


It is certain that it belongs to Asteraceae family.

May be some Senecio.


Asteraceae indeed… This is most likely Inula cappa


Please check the link for Duhaldea cappa (Asteraceae) in eFI:

I had posted this plant here a few weeks ago. Now I have more details. As far as I have seen these flower pods never open further than this. The leaves are furry underneath and are very attractive with their white toothed edges. This plant is spread on a flat rock. Please advise.
