Id pl.

Again, no location nor altitude?  This is Erodium tibetanum which Stewart records from Ladakh @ 3300-4800m.
In Ladakh there is also E.stephanianum @ 3300-3900m but this has much more dissected foliage.
E.cicutarium has not been recorded for Ladakh but is common in the hills & plains to 2700m.  ‘Flowers of Himalaya’ only describe
E.cicutarium which they say is common in Kashmir.
Klimes & Dickore found E.stephanianum a weed along roads, ditches & dump sites in ‘lower’ Ladakh.
‘Flora of Lahaul-Spiti’ list E.stephanianum as rare in moist places – which does not tally with Klimes & Dickore’s observations but the situation may be different in Lahoul?
