Enclosing some pictures for identification.
Begonia spp??
Location : Sundarijal Nepal
Altitude: 6000 ft.

Yes should be a begonia species.

Looking at the leaf structure it seems Didymocarpus stenanthos var. pilosellus and flowering already over. Sepals resemble. Attachments (2)

Thanks, … I somehow feels that it may be some other Didymocarpus species as it does not match exactly with sepals of Didymocarpus stenanthos var. pilosellus as attached by you.

Further their seems to be no distribution in Nepal as per Flora of China

Yes I also checked. Could it be first sighting in Nepal ? But need ID verification.

These are I think: Didymocarpus cinereus D. Don

Thank you for the ID finally.
Is the following description excerpted from a book is correct?

I can’t see any problem in the description though it’s not detail enough to identify at species level. The descriptions in Manandhar (2002) are concise and accurate but not always intended for identification at species level.
