Herb for ID, Lower Manimahesh, Himachal Pradesh NAW-SEP17-07 : 14 posts by 6 authors. Attachments (2)
Kindly identify this herb with yellow flowers photographed on the Manimahesh trail at the altitude of about 2000 metres, in June 2017.

I, by mistake, sent these pictures as part of a query for another plant, and … said that these are Euphorbia.


I missed another photograph. Attachments (1)

It seems Euphorbia cashmeriana Royle 


This is either E. donii or E. jacquemontii.

I am not sure.


Pl. check with images of these species at efi site. 


I guess Euphorbia wallichii !


They all seem very similar, tho E. jacquemontii seems furthest, so either E. donii or E. cashmeriana, i would say.


The narrow oblong leaves rule out E. cashmeriana which bears ovate leaves.


This appears to be Euphorbia jacquemontii Boiss.
