Aster sp. from Himachal for ID_KL_19102011: Sending these pictures on behalf of ... from Himachal Pradesh who works at PWD and has keen interest and expertise on the flora of Himachal Pradesh. I've also invited him to join eFlora.
He has asked me to get the ID validated from eFlora guessing it to be as Aster peduncularis.
Locality: Himachal Pradesh (1500-2000m)
Flowering time: September-October.
Please validate.
Frankly Aster and Erigeron in Western Himalayas are two genera which show a lot of variability and to me appear a difficult group. I have still not been able to place my specimens with confidence, but yes the above plants looks to be sharing two important characters of peduncularis winged petioles and leafy outer phyllaries. I have seen several populations like this elsewhere with purely white heads.
After going through the photographs of Aster asperulus and paper kindly supplied by ... in which Aster peduncularis was discussed, I think this is not A. peduncularis in which ligules are blue-purple and much longer and narrower, and petiole very distinctly winged. This seems to be some different plant.
This plant stands identified as Inula nervosa and confirmation made from the herbarium of FRI Dehradun and a paper of this plant as a new to Himachal Pradesh is publishing from Sikkim With DR. Pandey who is working to Inula to BSi. And also on the site Flowers of India. Thanks for put it on the site of Eflora of India.
Thanks ... for finally getting the identity of this plant resolved. Although white ligules are unusual for the genus Inula (but usual for I. nervosa), the involucre bracts I realise now are distinctive of Inula.


This species was also recorded at many places in the valley.. looks distinct in clearly glossy leaves and prominent veins... id please..
May be inula nervosa.
Thanks ... for this help..

This one was very common in moist shady places near Munsiyari-Shilling area in the valley.. id help requested..
looks like Inula nervosa

Here is the link:
