My Pending Identifications: Chakrata- Unid Asteraceae:: NS MARCH 17 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5).

This tiny Composite was shot from periphery of Chakrata town in August 2013…

please provide your inputs for the id.. can this be a Crepis sp.

Crepis species so far in efi

Crepis multicaulis Ledeb. ??

Appears close to  Crepis sancta (L.) Bornm. , but I do not find stem leaves like this in GBIF– specimen

Flora of China says Stem leaves 0-2, much reduced in size, linear, margin entire.
Another species which appeared close was Askellia flexuosabut I am not satisfied after going through specimens at GBIF and FoC illustration.
I am leaning more towards Crepis sancta (L.) Bornm.

Neither C. sancta nor C. multicaulis, none has auricled leaf bases in cauline leaves

Is there any closeup image of the Whole plant. Please have a look on Crepis capillaris.

Yes appear close.

Please also check probability of Ixeridium sagittarioides (C. B. Clarke) Pak & Kawano. Please note that flowering time doesn’t tally with literatures.
