Thanks … for this rare upload.

It seems the image i posted is the same plant, Thank you for highlighted the importance of this plant with a reference. The place where this observation made is an interior wild hill top shola, as it is mentioned in the paper the herb is associated with Cytisus scoparius (L.) Link, an Asteraceae herb.
