Small tufted Anaphalis species from Kashmir. Pl. help in ID.

Anaphalis virgata Thomson ??

Thanks, …, for the id.

Following keys in Flora of Pakistan, I feel you may be right.
I also tried other others as per keys (found in Kashmir) like Anaphalis boissieri E. Georgiadou and Anaphalis staintonii E. Georgiadou

Anaphalis virgata Thomson in C. B. Clarke appears more closer as per GBIF – specimen and POWO.
