Another Anaphalis? ABAUG2016/67 : 5 posts by 2 authors.
Found this at 1900m growing alone about 30cm tall. The bracts are covered in wool and the hairy leaves and habit point again to A. contorta. But if this is A. contorta than my other post may have something different. Please advise
Thanks, ...
Following three appears quite close from comparative images at Anaphalis:
Anaphalis busua (Buch.-Ham.) DC.
May be experts can help.

The other Anaphalis species here. On my previous walks I had been seeing unopened buds with reddish tinge (last photo from 31 July). This one is difficult for me but I think it more likely to be A. contorta. Please advise.

Anaphalis royleana (tentative) ABSEP2017/09
: 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (16)
This is perhaps the most common at higher altitudes here forming tufts between boulders. The overall appearance is grey-green with woolly leaves and stems. The difference between the two surfaces of the leaves is not marked. Flowers, which have narrow pointed white bracts, are larger in size and fewer in numbers than the A. contorta (tentative). The plants are not very tall most reaching about 30cm in height.
I am attaching at the end four comparative images with the other Anaphalis (A. contorta?) too.
Flora of Pakistan maintains three varieties of the species (var. cana, var. royleana and var. concolor) but Flora of China does not. The species is variable in the width of leaves and that confuses me. 
Again following the same principle of convergence of characteristics mentioned in different sources, our plants come close to A. royleana. Please advise.

*Anaphalis contorta (tentative!) ABSEP2017/08 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (9)
Even though I come close to a positive ID of this and the other Anaphalis sp. here, I am not very confident that I am being entirely successful. I follow Flowers of the Himalaya, Flora Simlensis, eFlora of China (and Pakistan), Flora of Chamba, Flora of Kullu, FOI website and of course our group site to see where all characteristics converge (and the most excellent Tibetan Medicinal Plants wherever applicable). I find following images alone is deceptive and often leads to more confusion. There is not enough to go by and the IDs are only provisional till experts comment on these. I am hoping that we come closer to an agreement on some of the Anaphalis species here.
Please bear with me if my conclusions/approach is not entirely correct. I will be grateful for advice.
My reasons for this tentative identification:
1. The leaves are dark green above and woolly white below and hence have good contrast between the two surfaces as indicated by several of the above mentioned sources.
2. The narrow leaves have in-rolled margins and auricles at the bases. They are partly decumbent too as mentioned in the above sources.
3. Tibetan Medicinal Plants mentions that the involucral bracts in this species are covered by the woolly indumentum, I am not entirely sure but please look at the photos and advise.
4. Flower clusters are compact with each head measuring about 4mm. Flowers of the Himalaya mentions the clusters to be 1.5cm across while our plants have broader clusters (about 4cm)
5. Bracts shiny white, blunt, broad, obtuse, erect in flower. Lower bracts often pale violet.
And I am not sure what other Anaphalis could this be. No other set of characteristics point to this.

Are the first three images from another plant?

Yes, ..., the first three are from a different plant but I do think that it belongs to the same species. Do you think it is different?
I am heading up in the mountains tomorrow morning and may be off for another few days busy with work. I haven't been able to participate as much as I would have liked this month but hopefully October would be better.
Thanks, ...,
I initially had some doubts, but they may be same.

After perusing the keys & detailed descriptions at the following, I feel it more closer to A. contorta:

Anaphalis busua, but needs confirmation

Identified as Anaphalis margaritacea as per thread
A critical relook at leaf bases, and after having seen and studied specimens from Manali, I believe this and the earlier photos belonged to Anaphalis busua.

Identify this flower from Chakarata.

How abt Anaphalis sp.

It is Anaphalis, but can't fix species at this time, heads are larger than species I know.

It is Anaphalis busua

You may be right. I also had that in mind, having collected in Manali, but was apprehensive because of larger heads.

I think you are right

VOF Week: Gnaphalium for id from the valley: This I hope is a Gnaphalium sp.....exact ideas please...
Gnaphalium is an important plant for homeopaths to use for sciatica and restless leg syn ... but which is this one?
looks like
Gnaphalium contorta
I somehow have the feeling that it may be Anaphalis busua (Buch.-Ham.) DC. Pl. check with pictures & other threads herein.
After perusing the keys & detailed descriptions at the following, I feel it more closer to A. contorta:
http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=121146&flora_id=2
 
One more Anaphalis... a confusing state for me, if anyone can help identify.. my guesses are leading me to nothing..
Keys at Anaphalis
It looks me like Anaphalis contorta.

Is it Helichrysum luteoalbum?
Found in Ahaldara, near Latpanchar, Darjeeling district, West Bengal
Altitude: Approx 4000 ft above ASL
Beautiful flowers. Is it succulent?
could be but the leaves at least the upper ones are so...ooo wrnkled that they look almost skinny like the rosemary leaves.
do you have another pic of leaves?
Does not seem to match with images of Pseudognaphalium luteoalbum (≡) Helichrysum luteoalbum (L.) Rchb.;
It is probably Anaphalis contorta. However, as there is no scale........plant material is needed for confirmation. Always, insist everyone to examine the plant under microscope!

Flora of Uttarakhand- Herb29 for Id- JM : 10 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (3)
Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).
Can this be Leontopodium jacotianum or stracheyi?
I would go with G. brachyactis Gandoger. In both G. jacotiana (Fl. Pak) and G. stracheyi (link below) colour and indumentum of cauline leaves is different from involucre leaves.
I think you meant L. instead of G.
Thanks for the correction and apologies for misidentification.
Yes ..., L. and not G. Sorry for typo error
May be Anaphalis contorta (D.Don) Hook.f. as per comparative images at Anaphalis
