OK ..., could be lacera. I went by spine-tipped leaf margin.
I think closer to Blumea oxyodonta as originally suggested by ...
Looks different from images at Blumea lacera

Many thanks ... for confirming the Id

the leaf margin is spiny especially serratures; leaves thick, very hairy- it is Blumea oxydonta- species epithet meaning oxy-sharp, dentos-with upward pointing teeth

Asteraceae Fortnight Part 2-Discoid Heads: Laggera for id from Panipat- NS 52 : Attachments (5).

This one was shot from Yamuna river adjoining Panipat..
resembles Laggera aurita.. but differs in being densely hairy, arrangement of heads..... shape, margin (they are nearly regularly dentate) and texture of leaves (here they are leathery)..
can this be a different species..
It is Blumea mollis not laggera
I find it more closer to images at Blumea oxyodonta DC.  as per images, details and references herein and as per FOC illustration 
yes I think it may be B.oxydonta based on leaf and indumentum; to differntiate Blumea and Laggera we must observe the anthers.

Blumea laciniata from Panni khoh MP
pls validate
This herb was shot on 20-1-12 from a somewhat shady place in Panni Khoh water fall
Having strong odour this herb was about 1 feet high only
If this plant has strong odour this may not be Blumea laciniata DC.
I checked two Blumea today and found that B. lacera DC. has strong odour, somewhat like that of merigold flowers, but B. laciniata has much less odour and the scent is different.
I attach combined photographs of both the species, they are growing side by side, both are between 1 ft to 1.25 ft. (5 images.)
I copy old records of Blumea laciniata from 'Bengal Plants', 'Flora of British India' and 'Flora Indica' :-
  1. Leaves on upper part of stem few, large, laciniate ......... (Bengal Plants)
  2. Usually taller than B. lacera, from which it is difficult to distinguish specimens with leaves more entire than usual...... Roxburgh says that this differ from B. lacera in having all the leaves laciniate, to which i suppose may be added its being scentless. ..... (F. B. I.)
  3. Of Blumea lacera, FLORA INDICA notes, ".... The whole plant has a pretty strong smell of turpentine."
I think this plant is some other species than B. lacera or B. laciniata.
I paste the links of related pages of old records :-
Bengal Plants -
Thank you,
Closest I can as per comparative images at Blumea is Blumea oxyodonta DC.

Please help in ID of this Compositae herb photographed along roadsides in Rishikesh. Have this single photograph only.
white is sooo difficult to capture
petal faces seem to be white yet the bud forms seem yellow

Seems some Blumea species.

This was photographed at "Taleran near Malshej ghat, Maharashtra".

Local Marathi name: Burando

(Family: Asteraceae).

Its an annual herb, around 20 to 80 cm, smells like turpentine. Whole Plant is pubescent, ash grey coloured.

I find it more closer to images at Blumea oxyodonta DC.

Blumea oxyodonta DC. is different as per images, details and references herein.
Pl. correct.

It still needs to be corrected.

..., this is the corrected image, what was earlier put as Blumea lacera.
As per your suggestion, it was Blumea oxyodonta.
Blumea malcomii is here:

Current image in FOI is also of B. oxyodonta

Thanks ..., for the persistent effort in correcting the errors!
Corrected now.
