Artemisia gmelinii: 10 images- 7 high res.
Along the roadside on the Leh-Khardung La road before South Pullu (15,300 ft) on 15.6.22 in Ladakh.
There seems to be two plants in some of the images.
I am talking of the one with a smaller, almost unopened type of leaves.

I think it matches better with Artemisia minor as per GBIF specimen and POWO specimen.


Hello dear, that is NOT Artemisia minor at all. But a member of the subgenus Seriphidium which is more common in the Ladakh Union territory.


May I request you to pl. go through GBIF specimen and POWO specimen.

Artemisia minor for validation: 13 images- 10 high res.
In rocky sandy area near Indus, in Ule (10,000 ft.) Ladakh, on 14.6.22.
I think it matches with Artemisia minor as per GBIF specimen and POWO specimen.
Pl. validate or otherwise.


Yes

Thanks for your reply. I am working Taxonomy of the genus Artemisia from past 4 years and I am very certain that the taxa you are showing is 100% NOT “Art. minor“. I have a collection of the same from wild populations and also have cultivated its seeds for In-situ observations. If you wish I can share you a picture of the actual Art. minor  from my own collection.


Yes, if you post the image, it will be more helpful.


Any guess from the Checklist of Ladakh?
