I guess it is some sp of Flaveria

nice but out of focus, esp when i try to enlarge to look at details. what lens did you use?

and where in the world is this town or area???

I think Uttar Pradesh.

Yes …, Maharajganj is a district in Uttar Pradesh. Thanks
… I will send another Photograph soon.

i like to see a closer pic of the buds/flowering and may be that will solve the question of sharpness loss whe enlarging pic in screen.

i am leaning towards Euphorbia ???

To me also appears to some member of Asteraceae only.

However, I do not find any Flaveria species in efi site, so far.

May I request you to point out which Flaveria species are found in your area or in India?

On further searching, I could find two species in India, none of them seem to match with your images, as per


Asteraceae ??

Two species of Flaveria occurs in Uttar Pradesh Flaveria australasica Hook. and Flaveria trinervia (Spreng.) Mohr. Only the latter species has been reported from our area (North-eastern U.P.), but my photographs are not matching with this species.

This is most likely Thespis divaricata DC.

Thanks, …, for the id as Thespis divaricata.

Yes, appears close to me also as per Thespis divaricata as per Plant illustrationsGBIF specimens from india- onetwothree and FoC illustration

Thanks a lot … for the id as Thespis divaricata. Is there no any color photographs of the species in India or abroad? I have searched on net but could not found any color photographs. Earlier I was send photographs of a clematis to different groups and renowned taxonomists but could not get answer and also there was no any color photographs on net.

Sir, BSI may have the record or photograph of this species, because in its one publication it reports the presence of the species in Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh.
