I am thinking this is a member of Crassulaceae – perhaps Rosularia ???
Location : Zara Valley, Ladakh
Elevation : 5000m.
Date : 3 August 2020
Habit : dry rocky habitat

Correction – Rhodiola ???

May I request you to pl. post high resolution image to see the details.

Could not find a match as per comparative images at Rhodiola

This plant certainly belongs to Rhodiola, probably Rhodiola tibetica.

Rhodiola heterodonta (Hook.f. & Thomson) Boriss. ??

Looks different from both Rhodiola tibetica and Rhodiola heterodonta

Other species listed as per link are:
Rhodiola quadrifolia
Rhodiola crenulata
Rhodiola imbricata

Of these Rhodiola crenulata appears to be the closest but I am still doubtful of the id, as per GBIF specimen 1 specimen 2

may be correct science leaf margins looks crenate.


Please find a high resolution picture. i hope this helps

I think Rhodiola crenulata is correct as per POWO specimen- one.
