Thank you … is there a common name for Dicrocephala integrifolia?

Thanks, … Pl. see

Thank you … CRC Dictionary does not give any common English name and I cannot verify the name Veronia anywhere else on the internet. Do you know if the name Veronia is in use?

Is this also Dichrocephala integrifolia? The leaves are more slender and plants smaller. Please advise.

The upload by … led me to look for similar photographed by me on Churdhar trip in 2015, but not able to process yet.

one D. integrifolia (syn: D. latifolia) with distinctly petiolate leaves with winged petiole and lyrately pinnately lobed leaves. Mine seems to be this one.

To me it appears like Dichrocephala chrysanthemifolia as in another post.

On further scrutiny, I feel it may be Dichrocephala integrifolia (L.f.) Kuntze only as stated by …

This should be type subsp. integrifolia
