I have been seeing this loosestrife around buy have not seen open flowers as yet. I am not sure if we can identify this from the following images, but I am trying.

Lysimachia species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)


I hope this should be Lysimachia pyramidalis


Looks different from images at Lysimachia pyramidalis
Pl. check other species at Lysimachia

I tried matching with five species represented from Himachal in efi so far. But unable to match with anyone.


I think it is Lysimachia chenopodioides. I will file more photos soon.

Thanks, …,
You are right in your id as Lysimachia chenopodioides
We have most of these species in efi site, with which your post does not match.
It matches well with the only species left i.e. Lysimachia chenopodioides as per high resolution specimens and description at
Thank you very much … for confirming this. I will soon file more photos as promised.

As promised, here are some fresh photos of L. chenopodioides.
