Appears close to Blumea species to me. 
Pl. check with comparative images at Blumea. Also check with images at Blumea aromatica DC. 
Thank you for the ID.  Blumea aromatica Wall. ex DC. (accepted name) 

I think more close to images at Blumea hieraciifolia  

Location: Soureni, Mirik, India

Altitude: 4400 ft.


I think close to Blumea hieraciifolia as per images, details and references herein.

Validation required for the variety of Blumea hieracifolia (D. Don) DC. from Himachal. Kindly guide me over this. I am confused between var. hieracifolia and var. hamiltoni (DC.) C.B. Clarke.
I think it should be var. hieraciolia only.
var. hamiltonii I think has only one or two very distant cauline leaves and heads in more condensed fascicles:

Elevation: 4600 ft.
SynBlumea mollis (D. Don) Merr.  ???

Looks different. Pl. check other species at 


Looks like matching with http://picssr.com/tags/blumealacera and Link but I could not validate !
I think it is close to Blumea oxyodonta as per images, details and references herein.
Looks different from images at Blumea lacera 
On further scrutiny, I think it appears more closer to Blumea malcolmii rather than Blumea oxyodonta as per images, details and references in these links. 
On further scrutiny, I will like to go with Blumea hieraciifolia (D. Don) DC. only, as per images, details and references herein.
