When and where were these clicked/ taken ?

District Patan Gujarat. Date – month of October

Looks close to Iphiona aucheri of Asteraceae posted by me from Oman earlier.

Please provide any literature for its occurrence in India (If available). Because I am unable to get any information for this plant.

Different from Iphiona aucheri (Boiss.) Anderb. as per images and details herein.

On further searching, I think it is Iphiona grantioides as per specimens at GBIF
