Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).


Myriactis nepalensis, the ligules some times turn purplish with age.


Myriactis nepalensis indeed


Thanks, … I think it is not there in Concise Flowers of Himalayas by Oleg Polunin & Adam Stainton. However, flowers look different (though may be same species as pointed out by …) in earlier thread on Myriactis nepalensis– may be due to different time of photographs


The species is common in Himalayas and has white ray florets, but may be some times purplish

I think it should be Myriactis wightii as per thread: VOF Week: Asteraceae sp -1 for ID from VOF
