Erigeron sp.?ABMAY2019/04 : 3 posts by 2 authors. 13 correct images.

This plant is in flower here now. I have photographed the habit (not taller than 25cm usually), the flowers (10-15mm), leaves, stalk, and the achenes. I am not sure where to place it. I thought of Erigeron acer var. multicaulis but I am not sure. Please advise.

This Erigeron was probably shot from Chakrata region.. can id be reached? Mine guess is Erigeron alpinus…


A reply from another thread:

Erigeron alpinus, although described in some older Indian Floras, as understood now occurs in Europe, Africa and in Asia only in Caucasus.

Most Indian varieties in FBI are now treated differently, even the type variety as per Enumeration of Flowering Plants of Nepal:

I guess Erigeron alpinus L. is the correct ID !

and screen shot from the link Vasculau Plants, Kinnaur, Himanchal Pradesh


No distribution in India as per POWO.
