While browsing the net I came across many such asteraceae which are distributed in our country, yet I couldn’t find them in the “Flora of British India”. It is quite possible they are hidden under different names. Besides, FBI also listed some doubtful spp at the endnotes of each section.

They are listed in the Flora of British India, but much data is not freely available in the net world.
I don’t have those uncommon spp. They might have already been identified in the eFI group site, or not. This is my effort to gather data, in order to make identification of wild asteraceae easier for the learners, and maybe experts too!!!
