ID Request- Oxytropis Herb at Pangong lake -Ladakh – Sept- PKA-03 : 6 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)

Seen this Oxytropis sp. (Herb) near Pangong lake, ladakh.
(Atitude: 14200 ft approx).
Family: Fabaceae
Date/Time: 21-06-2016 / 07:00am..


Oxytropis species so far in efi 


As mentioned for a previous inquiry, Oxytropis is a large genus; some of the species in Ladakh are difficult to identify/distinguish.
One has to inspect Oxytropis carefully, as Stewart lists 10 species from Ladakh, whilst Klimes & Dickore have 14 in their more up-todate checklist incl. a hybrid between O.microphylla and O.chiliophylla!  It is a very large genus indeed.
Sometimes not easy to distinguish between Oxytropis and Astragalus.
I do not initially have any suggestions which species … photographed at Pangong Lake.
Hopefully, others can help?


Appears close to images at Oxytropis cachemiriana Cambess.
