I guess name changed to Oreoseris maxima (D.Don) X.D.Xu & W.Zheng !

yes. the name change is recent. don't know the full history of the thinking, but it seems lots of work went in to recognize that Indian and asian gerberas were not closely related to the African Gerberas.\

Gerbera maxima (D. Don) Beauverd 

I don’t think it's Gebera maxima
If you google at the name you see quite different plants


Yes, matches with image in GBIF.

Thanks a lot; image is convincing 
It is it.
