Aster indamellus Grierson. ???

Looks different from Aster indamellus as per POWO.
Could not find a match as per comparative images at Aster.
Maybe some other genus.

Looking like Aster thomsonii to me. Time of flowering and leaves also matching.

Cordiofontis nepalensis (Grierson) G.L.Nesom. Syn : Aster peduncularis subsp. nepalensis Grierson ???

Our posts were just a minute difference😄!
I guess the plant and flower pattern is more close to my guess.

Please have a look and suggest !

you may be right. Actually, I was not aware about “Cordiofontis nepalensis (Grierson) G.L.Nesom. Syn : Aster peduncularis subsp. nepalensis Grierson”

I do not think it matches with either of these two.
Looks different from Cordiofontis nepalensis as per GBIF specimens- onetwothree.
Thank you.
Thank you.

Yes, close as per these.
