May I request you to pl. post a habit image.
In the close up posted images, leaves appear to be looking larger than they actually may be.
That is creating doubt about the id as per GBIF specimens- onetwothree

Yes sir, Actually i captured this from Pinus roxburghii forest, and it matches with govanii as per flora of Garhwal by RD Gaur Sir. But still for more authentication i will upload whole habitat. It is interesting that you again take it for id.

Please check sir.
3 images.

Okay sir, I’ve only these images of habit. I don’t have image of whole habit. But i will try to capture it again during my next field visit.
