Borganaceae 010722JM3: 2 images.
On way from Changla Pass (17600 ft) to Pangong (14000 ft) on 17.6.22 in Ladakh.


I think it appears close to Eritrichium canum (Benth.) Kitam. as per POWO specimen. Kindly confirm or otherwise.



Also attaching two high res. images.


Yes, Eritrichium canum.

In this genus the fruits bear key features. My guess is still E. canum with those densely grey hairy leaves.
