Cissampelopsis buimalia (Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen
Syn : Senecio buimalia Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don

There are no ray florets here as in Cissampelopsis buimalia
I think your earlier suggestion of Cissampelopsis corymbosa (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen is correct as per FoPI & GBIF– specimen onetwothreefour and as per keys at Cissampelopsis

OK … !

Requesting to please ID this plant captured in the Ooty Botanical Gardens, Ooty in November 2013.

Could this be Cissampelospis corymbosa of Asteraceae?

Thanks … for the feedback…
However, I did not find any this in the efi database nor in the plantlist.
Could you please provide a reference link for the same?

Please see this list for all the plants in Tamilnadu:
I referred the recently published book on
Flowering Plants of Sholas and Grasslands of the Nilgiris‘ by
N.Krishnakumar, P.S.Udayan, S.P.Subramani,
R.Anandalakshmi (2013) for identifying your plant.
The Plant List link for this plant’s synonym Senecio corymbosus Wall.ex DC

Please note: the correct spelling is Cissampelopsis corymbosa.

Senecio corymbosus Wall.ex DC is a different plant as per the Plant List
India Biodiversity Portal link of Cissampelopsis corymbosa

Yes, it seems to be Cissampelopsis corymbosa (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen (Senecio corymbosus Wall. ex DC.), found in Nilgiri hills of Tamil Nadu, Kalahandi hills of Odisha and Maharashtra at 1500 – 2500 m alt.
