How many plants in this picture:

Three already identified by … Others-
Viola sp.
Cynodon dactylon
Oxalis corniculata
Galium sp.
and A grass too.

Believe me, I was trying to identify the Asteraceae flowers!

Now I have a huge list of ids!!



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/spanflower.jpg
Could the learned members of the group establish the identity of these flowers growing wild on the banks of the river Beas at village Katrain (30 minutes enroute to Manali). The flowers were in close proximity to the river’s rapids and were photographed on June 27, 2014.
Any background information on this flower would be welcome.

Astaraceae member


Thanks for following up, … The identity was settled by …, and I featured this in my Sunday `wildbuzz’ column in the Hindustan Times of July 6, 2014. The online link is below.


I think, it is Erigeron annuus (Syn.: Aster annuus, Erigeron heterophyllus)
Common names: Annual Fleabane, daisy fleabane, sweet-scabious, tall fleabane, whitetop.

It is erigeron annus

Erigeron bellidioides? : 6 posts by 4 authors.

I took this picture a week back and assumed it to be Daisy Fleabane or Erigeron bellidioides.
Could you please confirm?

It is growing aplenty on mountain slopes, its flowers magnets for some butterflies.


but can we know which mountain slope, which state please thanks and how high was this plant


Thank you … This is taken in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of roughly 1700m. This wild plant grows in rough clumps and is usually about 2 to 3 feet tall.

Hope this information helps.


Appearing as Erigeron annuus (Annual Fleabane).


Yes Erigeron annuus. It has spread rapidly in recent years in Western Himalayas.

Please help in Id of this Erigeron photographed from Manali.

The heads look like E. annuus but lack the broader greenish-yellow disc.


I take it finally as Erigeron annuus only.

I could not find it listed in Nepal list but it was shot in the wild.

Looks different from comparative images at Erigeron


Is it the same ? FOI


Yes, to me also appears close as per images at FOI

The Plant List has listed E. annuus and E. heterophyllus as separate accepted IDs whereas the FoI has listed as synonyms and the Google showing two different plants for above names.

Also check Catalogue of life and Flora of China and BSI Flora of India


Yes sir its Erigeron annuus.
A common weed in temperate areas of Himachal Pradesh.

Catalogue

Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. (accepted name)
Erigeron bellidioides Spenn. (synonym)

It is something like Algebra calculation😁😁

As per Flora of China, Erigeron annuus (Linnaeus) Persoon is native to E North America; widely introduced worldwide.
Also as per BSI Flora of India, distribution is given as India: Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Sikkim and Meghalaya; Canada, Europe, United States of America and China (A very variable apomictic species, cultivated or naturalised in some places).
In efloraofindia, we also have observations from Kashmir & Uttarakhand at Erigeron annuus
Thus it is possible that it also got introduced in Nepal, being the area in between these states.

Yes … It is listed in Nepal under Erigeron bellidioides (Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don) Benth. ex C. B. Clarke which is syn: to Erigeron bellidioides Spenn. in the Plant List and ultimately Syn: to Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers.  in the Catalogue of Life  which I had mentioned in my earlier mail.
Just look like Algebra calculation ! 


No, it is not like this.
Erigeron bellidioides Spenn. is a synonym of Bellis annua L. as per The Plant List Ver. 1.1 based on data from GCC.
Pl. see more details in GCC 2
Erigeron bellidiodes (Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke is different as per images & details herein.

All IDs showing different plants however names are linked through one another portals. Anyway, it is decided as earlier and looks a new to Nepal, may be!

Yes its Erigeron sp. Most closely to Erigeron annuus. Check and confirm.

fleabane, a weed


It does match with your suggested id Erigeron annuus.

This Asteracean was shot from Chakrata region, tentatively identified as Erigeron pulchellus… please provide id..


E. annuus could be considered.


I guess E. annus is the correct ID.



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Symhiotrichum%20pilosum-Dubia%2016Yamunanagar-IMG_8423-Yamunanagar-1.jpg
This erect branched herb was clicked from along roadsides in Yamunanagar, Haryana on May 24, 2015.  I hope it narrows down to Symphiotrichum pilosum, it has been reported from J & K as per Flora of India 12:99, 1995, but listed as excluded species, because being perhaps escape from cultivation. Related species S. ericioides has spine tipped phyllaries.  

I am having doubts as per close up images at Minnesota Wildflowers as phyllaries appears to be different.
May I request you to pl. post original of 1st image.

Here it is …

Yes, it looks different and is not Symphiotrichum pilosum


I had posted this common picture on Indian Flora facebook, with this plant on right, I am also sharing plant on the left still unidentified. I agree ray florets are much narrower in my right plant shared above, could be some Erigeron.
I am sharing another plant separately also.

Reply in from another thread:
Rather my other upload which I suspect Symphiotrichum pilosum is more closer to E.annus

Looks different from Symphiotrichum pilosum !


These are rather two populations not very far away, one with  very long florets and  one short ray florets . They look different.
Help with ID perhaps Erigeron from Yamuna Nagar to Renuka ji Road-GS28022020-1 (google.com)


Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers.


I am not getting convinced.


But that is the correct possibility, I am getting at this time.

Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. ???
But not listed in Nepal so far.

Yes. To me also appears close to images and references at Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers.as per comparative images at Erigeron
It has already been reported from Nepal as per

Thank you … It is difficult for me to find the sp. which are not listed in the book and ACFPN.


Going by phyllaries, it appears more closer to images at Erigeron multiradiatus (Lindl. ex DC.) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke rather than Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers.


This looks right


On further consideration, I think Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. only as phyllaries seems to match as per GBIF observations:

I think looks different from images at Myriactis nepalensis


Also check some Erigeron species.


I could not find a match as per comparative images and keys from Flora of Bhutan at Erigeron
I tried other genus as per comparative images at Astereae, but did not succeed


Basal leafing pattern resembes Leucanthemum vulgare Lam., however floral pattern and size looks smaller.

Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. as per images and details herein.


Reference: GBIF specimen


Going by phyllaries, it appears more closer to images at Erigeron multiradiatus (Lindl. ex DC.) Benth. ex C.B.Clarke rather than Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers.

Little confused about the shape and stalk on basal leaves.

E. radiatus leaf stalk has wing up to the stem joint whereas my images do not have.

On further consideration, I think Erigeron annuus (L.) Pers. only as phyllaries seems to match as per GBIF observations:
