Identification required for Galium sp. From Ganderbal kashmir: 3 high res. images.

Not easy since no habitat images and other parts !

will send habitat images soon. it was found near the wetland

1 image.

Leaves are still not clear. However please try Galium asperuloides Edgew. !

Also verify at

It can’t be G. asperuloides which has 6-8 leaves in a whorl
Here we can see 4 leaves in a whorl, hence G. serpylloides is a possibility. Check for the fruits.

Leaves are broad in  G.serpylloides

Yes, it looks different from G.serpylloides as per POWO specimenFoP and FoP illustration.
