Cirsium wallichii DC, Fam Asteraceae
wild herb from Nigiri hills area of Tamilnadu, altitude is around 2000m


Cirsium wallichii I don’t think has winged stem. To me it looks like Carduus sp.

Achenes pappus would solve the confusion.

I too agree it is Carduus sp, but species identity needs to be confirmed. If anybody have clarity in this taxon kindly help.
