Stellaria uliginosa Murray. ??
Syn : Stellaria alsine Grimm

Looks different from images at Stellaria alsine Grimm
Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Stellaria

try Stellaria media

Tried earlier but could not conclude due to the difference of 3 months in flowering season.

you still don’t get it. global warming and environmental upheaval around the world negates seasons as written down in older floras, books etc. if anatomy matches prescribed features, that’s what we go with to check with older seasonal calendar

Cerastium cerastioides

I am afraid Cerastium cerastoides is not the correct ID.

It appears apparently similar to Stellaria vestita Kurz, but is different from it.

Stellaria patens var. ovatifolia H.Hara !
Endemic to Nepal!

ID credit Ms. Rashika Kafle !
