Campanulaceae & Gentianaceae Week: Campanulaceae-Campanula sp. from Turtuk Ladakh: While going thru my collection of photographs from Ladakh region, i came across these photographs of Campanula sp. Thought of sharing with you all.
Location: Turtuk, Ladakh (Altitude approx: 10000ft).
Date/Time: 18-09-2011 / 05:30PM.
Habitat: Wild
Plant habit: Herb.


I wonder if this could be our elusive Campanula pallida var. tibetica. The broader calyx lobes with overlapping bases look distinctive. the high altitude fits it also. Let us hope to resolve it. It looks more convincing than below: http://www.planetefleurs.fr/Systematique/Campanulaceae/Campan16f.htm


Thanks … Thanks … I think U R right. Looking at the link provided by you and the illustration in efloraofpakistan, the plant seems to be same.
