Please compare with Acmella ciliata in eFI.
Yes it is A. paniculata…. a medicinal edible plant. It is popularly known as Small Marhatti (Sano marhatti) too in Nepali. The side view of flower could have made easier to identify.
Thank you …! I am still a learner and lot more learn yet.
Actually your interest and contribution in plants is an example for the people working and studying plants….
Learning is never ending process ….hope to see further contributions..
Thank you … for the compliments.
Yes, indeed learning process is a never ending process!
No, it is not Acmella paniculata (does not have ray florets) as per details and images herein.
I had earlier identified it as Acmella ciliata (Introduced) as per details and images herein.
However, I do not find its mention in the Checklist of Nepal.
Yes …! Need to check it, with details..
Yes It is not A paniculata as per its characters.
Other options could be A. calva, A. ciliata
Did not find listing of A. ciliata in Nepal unless it is a new to Nepal.
