Please identify

Senecio wightii looks somewhat similar, but still doubtful

Thank you … for the links. There is a broad similarity, but the plant doesn’t quite agree with Senecio wightii.

Yes …! The second link differs however first matches to some extent.

Pl. also check

Any match : Re: [efloraofindia:154844]  ??

I think close to Senecio wightii only as per GBIF (from India)– specimen– and  Plant illustrations and FoC illustration

With the description and images in this paper, Research gate, it looks like Duhaldea eupatorioides. This ID was provided by Shweta Shekhar, one of the authors of the above paper.
