Requesting to please ID this plant growing wild among the grasses in a meadow in Ooty, Tamil Nadu in November 2013.
…, I am also awaiting to get the id for this small herb. I noticed the same plant in Pykara falls area of Nilgiris (2000 m asl); flower not more than a cm across. Attaching with the same thread since I believe both of us looking for the same species.
Yes … I captured it at the 9th Mile Shooting Meadow on the way to Pykara lake…
