Small Plant for ID : Nasik : 19JAN22 : AK – 27:
Another very tiny spiny plant seen at the base of Borgad today (19.1.22).

Lepidagathis cristata

Difficult to me to validate or otherwise as per images at Lepidagathis cristata

Not a problem.
I had posted one from the same area in Nov. It had flowers.
I had suggested Lepidagathis trinervis.
Will check for the flowers when I revisit the place.
