Attached herewith are images for Senecio edgeworthii photographed near Talegaon Dabhade.
I was puzzled with one of the feature of the plant. The plant had small cottony nodule like structures near the base as well as at every leaf node. They did not appear like stipules.
Would like to know what these out growths are. Would request for comments.
Can it be Senecio bombayensis Balakr. ?
Different leaf shapes in different links. Difficult to confirm !
I guess Senecio edgeworthii Hook.f. is correct ID ! Species Senecio bombayensis N.P.Balakr.
