Closet I could reach as per comparative images at Senecio is Senecio scandens Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don

Any other species available in Nepal checklist of this genus which is not there in efi database.

senecio? at 2400m : 10 posts by 3 authors.
Is this a senecio?
Nepal – Janakpur (NP)
Underway from Kyama to Umarthirta in Numbur valley at about 2400m
Along the path at a dry place

Synotis sp. ??

Does not seem to match with the existing species in efi site at Synotis

Senecio is also possible as per comparative images herein.

Those hairy leaves; isn’t that a key to the species? It was a dry place along a road

I have incorporated key at Senecio from Flora of Bhutan.
However, this species look different than available in Bhutan.

It is Senecio as per keys herein.

Yes, it appears so.
