On further checking, appears close to images at Senecio scandens Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don

Looks different from images at Senecio scandens

Hi, …, What are the species reported from your area?


Senecio wightianus and S.wightii are recorded in Mizoram


Senecio wightii (DC.) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke ??


Thanks, … That is the closest (Senecio wightii (DC.) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke) I can go as per Plant illustrations & GBIF Specimens from India:

Location: Chhaimale, Nepal

I think does not matches with the following:

Senecio scandens Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don  ??

Plant description, altitude and flowering season does not

completely matches with Senecio scandens Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don (accepted name) according to the FoI and FoN.


I also feel these are closer to images at

So is it Senecio scandens Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don ?


Phyllaries and the leaf pattern looks different than S. scandens in this sp.

Any opinion …?

Even corolla pattern looks different.


Yes, this one and MS March, 2019 Senecio sp. for Id look different, from other posts at Senecio scandens

You have to check other closely related species.


I tried all species as per Checklist of Nepalbut could not find a match.

I have no doubt that it is the same plant as at MS March, 2019 Senecio sp. for Id

It is listed in Bhutan. So it is possible that it may be found in Nepal also.


OK …! I have to research further if it turns out to be a new sp. for Nepal !

Senecio wightii looks somewhat similar, but still doubtful

Thank you … for the links. There is a broad similarity, but the plant doesn’t quite agree with Senecio wightii.


Yes …! The second link differs however first matches to some extent.
