Earlier responses:
1. May be Gentianella moorcroftiana — …
2. How about Gentianella paludosa? —— …

Reposting this once again on the occasion of ongoing C & G week.


With calyx tube strongly keeled, it should be Gentiana detonsa var. stacheyi of FBI, now correctly known as Gentianopsis paludosa (Munro ex Hook.f.) Ma. Here is my herbarium from Ladakh collected in 1971 from Drass in Ladakh. I wish we had digital cameras then.
