Neobrachyactis pubescens?? The pics are insufficient you know,


Yes! I understand … Actually it was requested by a friend which I had already mentioned. It was lying pending for 3 years. As such he requested me. Anyways, it does not look like matching and there is a vast difference in the elevation.


… said it so nicely and succinctly. lets wait for newer crop of it. this one was badly invaded, infected too


Did not understand ! Poor in English !


ha ha, you not know English? he said after giving a possible id, that the pictures are insufficient… very nicely …
so I said lets wait for newer crop…. ie if you find it again in next season for it. you may get better pictures in your own style and when I enlarged the picture esp the first one,
there are many small black insects on it.
I hope this is clear

Ok. I don’t think there would be another picture since it is very remote area and far away from Kathmandu.

Yes, looks different from Neobrachyactis pubescens
I could not find a match as per comparative images at Astereae

I tried with keys in Flora of Bhutan, but could not succeed in id.


Thank you … I am also trying but no result !
Could it be Laggera or Blumea ??

I do not think so.


I feel some like Inuleae member like Inula


Could not get a match.


Could not find a match as per species listed under Inula as per Checklist of Nepal.


Details are not clear.
I feel it may be Carpesium nepalense Less. as per GBIF– specimens from Nepal- onetwo and three.


May be … !


I feel this looks different from Carpesium nepalense.
