Astragalus species so far in efloraofindia
Can the botanist with special knowledge of the genus help us or anyone else? Do the photos reveal sufficient detail?
It seems to be A. zanskarensis.
Please tell me how one distinguishes between A.zanskarensis and A.candolleanus?
I now typically take 10-20 images per plant I come across. If anyone wishes further advice about such photography, they are most welcome to contact me directly for further advise. I am particularly keen to view more images of plants photographed in Ladakh in particular but anywhere in the NW Himalaya/ Indian Trans-Himalaya are of particular interest. Anyone planning a trip to such places in 2017 or beyond may wish to ensure their efforts will enhance existing photographic records.
Thanks … Happy to see Ids getting resolved ..
