Small Asteraceae herb for id from Maihar Maa Sharda Temple area
This small herb about 25 cm herb was shot from open grassland area in Maihar MP on 15 Jan 2012
Head about 1-1.2 cm, leaves simple lanceolate about 2-3 cm

pls id


Is it some species of Blumea?


What about Tridax? ….


Some pics of this plant are deleted by chance so no more pics. Yes may be Tridax


Does not look like Tridax procumbens. Any other sp. having distribution

in Indian? Leaf  and habitat images would have helped.


Resembles Pulicaria


Looks close to Pulicaria wightiana C.B.Clarke as per comparative images at Pulicaria


I think this may be Pulicaria foliolosa as per keys in Flora of Medak district and GBIF- specimen 12 and 3 and as per CoL and POWO.
