… has helpfully ided this as Saussurea sp.
Can the id be narrowed down to the species level?
Photo from Betuli Dhar ridge, Thamri Kund Trail, Munsiyari, Uttarakhand
Pl. check comparative images at Saussurea
However, I could not find any match as per comparative images at Saussurea
Closer to Saussurea roylei.
Thank you sirs! The only comparative image of S. roylei I can find is this one in which the plant has gone to seed.
I am not sure about the id as by specimens at GBIF.
Saussurea picridifolia (Hand.-Mazz.) Y.S.Chen & Qian Yuan. ??
But I could not find listing in Nepal and India !
I guess it is mentioned about its distribution in India and Nepal in Flora of pan-himalaya !
Leaves look different from specimens at GBIF
