Cannot help with this. A plant new to me. There are so many species/genera in need of attention that I do know something about – makes sense to concentrate upon these.
Stewart does not record P.racemosa from Pakistan or Kashmir.
Collet in Flora Simlensis does not record it but Enumeration of Flowering Plants of Nepal says Shimla to Bhutan….
They give P.scripta’s distribution as from Garwhal to Bhutan. Collet records Pilea scripta as common in shady places at Shimla.
Most probably Collet misidentified P.scripta when it was P.racemosa but have not got the time to check this further.
