Any idea about the family ?


Could be Asteraceae (Compositae )?


Appears to be Scrophularia. Please check.


Scrophularia elatior Benth. ??


I guess Scrophularia urticifolia Wall. ex Benth. would be correct ID since it is recorded in the Kathmandu Valley according to the book !
Could you please look into this ??

Yes, appears close as per high resolution specimens from Nepal at GBIF

Thank you …!

This Scrophularia sp. was photographed near Bhimtal (1400m) by me.
Corolla lobes are distinctly unequal and lower lobe is reflexed.

This seems a common species in montane zones but in lack of proper literature it is still unidentified in my collection.


I have also shared pics of the same species, shot from Gori Valley Area…will be happy to know..
