Artemisia capillaris from Delhi-GS02122021-1: 4 images.
I had already mixed up my specimens under A. scoparia from which A. capillaris differs as under:

(9) Leaf segments linear-lanceolate, 3 – 4 (-5) mm long, 0.5 – 1 mm wide. Artemisia scoparia
+ Leaf segments filiform, 8 – 12 mm long, 0.3 – 0.5 mm wide. Artemisia capillaris
According to eFlora of Pakistan A. capillaris is distributed below 1000 m altitude, BSI Flora of India does not recognise A. scoparia as distinct from A. capillaris.
