The pic was taken in August 2014.
Very beautiful picture
Seems to be Cynoglossum microglochin var. nervosum ..
Another Boraginaceae for ID ABOCT2016/03 : 5 posts by 3 authors. 4 images.
This one too is from the same area taken a week after the first walk. The leaves here are broader with prominent veins but these are lower leaves. The upper ones are narrow and without distinct veins. In my opinion this resembles the plant in my last post but I am not so sure. Please advise.
Ilaqa, Above Triund, HP 3300m approx. 11 September 2016
I am looking into this but wonder if by “lower leaves” you have mistaken the large leaves of what appear a Plantago to me? Your 4th image with one of such leaves dominating the photo, suggests this.
IF, it is a Trigonotis then T.rotundifolia is the most likely candidate. T.tibetica is nothing like this and only seems to have records for Ladakh in this region.#
Except Trigonotis rotundifolia is not a recognised name within ‘The Plant List’, so can anyone tell me what H.P. specimens of what was this, are now named as?
I think Cynoglossum microglochin Benth. var. microglochin as per images herein
Lovely flowers. The images do seem to match other images of C.microglochin.
Stewart found this to be very common and with larger plants and flowers than C.glochidiatum @ 2000-3500m.
Thank you … To me the leaves look different from the efloraofindia images. The ones on my sample have no distinct veins.
I haven’t been able to trek up to collect more evidence but I am hoping to do it soon.
