Image 1 Potentilla multifida L. ??
Please check Potentilla !
To me looks different from these two species as per Potentilla multifida and
May I request you to pl. post high resolution images for proper id.
Potentillas are tricky even when you have a herbary specimen, not speaking about low resolution images. I agree that the first image could be placed with some certainty in Potentilla multifida agg. The second I don’t dare guess, but I am sure it is not Potentilla pamirica as was suggested. It´s all a job for experts.
For I’d 140722 JM 2: 3 images- 1 high res.
Request for I’d of both these plants.
Taken on 15.6.22 in South Pullu at around 15000 ft. while going up from Leh to Khardung La (17800 ft.).
I guess it is correct
Possible. There are three varieties of this species in W Himalaya. These could be radical leaves…
I guess you are right
Pl. confirm or otherwise.
I feel this is P. multifida only. In irrigated fields and wet meadows forms are a bit different. As such, there are three varieties of this taxon in the region.
