Please help in ID of this Alpine species..
Locality: Nichnai, Sonamarg, Kashmir
Altitude: above 4000 m

Looks like some Androsace sp. (Primulaceae).

Androsace studiosarum? Or Androsace sermentosa ?

Androsace sarmentosa is my guess as well, but I see the flower shape slightly different, and size…

Thanks for correspondence. I can also say that this picture may be of Androsace sermentosa but can’t confirm because I never collected flora from that region. Leaves of this picture are not quite clear to identify because many species of Primula are also grown in that region hence confirmation it really very tough task.

Could you get it identified?
It looks different from Androsace sermentosa as per Androsace World.

Some little possibility of it being Androsace sempervivoides Jacq. ex Duby
