Matricaria aurea from Kashmir: Matricaria aurea (Loefl.) Schultz-Bip., Bonplandia. 8: 369. 1860

syn: Cotula aurea Loefl.; Chamomilla aurea (Loefl.) Gay ex Cosson & Kralik
Common name: Golden mayweed 
Branched prostrate to erect herb with sessile leaves 2-3-pinnatisect having filiform segments; heads discoid, 5-6 mm across, yellow; involucre bracts oblong with brown scarious margin; florets tubular with 4-lobed corolla; achene brownish without pappus.
Distinct from Matricaria matricaroides in smaller yellow heads, involucre bracts with brown margins, achenes without pappus, 4-lobed corolla and smaller leaves with narrower segments.  
Photographed from Rainawari, Kashmir. I have included photographs of both species for comparison.
