Sir I am attaching some pics taken from Deovan area at a height of about 2900 mts
Looks Silene indica var. indica
But doubt is there in pattern of Corolla
pls help to fix the id
I think it is S. edgeworthii (=Silene indica var. edgeworthii)
and not Silene indica var. indica
Sir leaves and hairy nature of these plants match with your pics Silene-indica-indica--Chakrata Budher caves road-1.jpg So i id this as S indica var indica
anyway Thanks for Correction Sir
Leaves do show some variation but petals are diagnostic.
All Silene flowers seem to have a peculiar shape and they look beautiful. I am not aware of any species of Silene in our part i.e.Western ghats.
I think Silene conoidea would be there also

Silene series 4 - Pangi al050911b: I thought this one to be Silene setisperma, but I await your expert opinions..
Location Pangi
Altitude 3000 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild

I fear your plant may not be Silene setisperma, and same is also true of Flowers of India 
The whole problem seems to arise from the fact that flowers of Himalayas Plate 18 has only swollen calyx and no petals visible, and it does not list Silene indica. Your plant may be Silene indica var. indica only. Silene setisperma is based on Lychnis inflata (not to be confused with Silene inflata), is a much distinct plant with rounded corolla lobes, and a plant again not reported from Pakistan (see eFl Pakistan) although Flora Himalayas mentions so. 

Silene indica is very confusing plant which looks like S. setisperma. I also confused when i collected it from the way to Chor. But thanks to ... and put it on the site of Flowersof India.The comments by Sir ... is abosolutely correct.

This is one more from the same trip. again, found around 12000ftasl.
in my misguided effort to get an artistic looking photograph, I missed out on capturing the leaves and other parts. Please do let me know if this is identifiable as is.

Looks like Himalayan Campion (Silene setisperma)
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Himalayan%20Campion.html
from the family of China Pinks.
I had initially also thought that it is a Campion as well, but the description does not match completely. I do not think the flowers are star shaped. Also the petals that are emerging seem to be fringed at the edges. Possibly it is of the same family? 

I think your plant is Silene setisperma only. Recently I've also photographed this from Himachal Pradesh. Because of the drooping nature of the flower, fringed petals are not visible in your photo. I posted my
photographs on eFlora today with the same subject line but it is not merged with your thread. Pl check the fotos in today's post with the same subject line of yours.
Further insight into this plant and one uploaded by ... is needed in light of my observations in that thread.
It should be Silene indica as per images herein.

I think your plant is Silene setisperma only. Recently I've also photographed this from Himachal Pradesh. Because of the drooping nature of the flower, fringed petals are not visible in your photo. Pl find my fotos for comparison.
- Some how I am not very confident about the identification with S. setisperma. Firstly the photograph at FOI and that uploaded by ... don't look identical. One at FOI has much greener calyx and veins don't seem merging towards apex. The one uploaded by ... has paler calyx (almost cream colour) with veins clearly uniting above. Unfortunately both don't have leaves to confirm. Fortunately your photographs are more illustrative and resemble the plant uploaded by ..., but is it S. setisperma?
The name Silene setisperma was given by Majumdar for species earlier known as Lychnis inflata (Wall. ex Don) Benth. (because there was already a species by the name of Silene inflata). The plant has elliptic to lanceolate
leaves, lower petiolate.
In your plant the leaves are clearly ovate, with sessile perhaps cordate base.
Perhaps some more comparison is needed.
- Thanks for the important information regarding S. stisperma. Unfortunately, I could not find the original description of the plant anywhere and blindly followed the FOI photograph. I hope experts on the group will help in this regard.
It should be Silene indica as per images herein.

Silene species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)
Please check for Silene nigrescens.
I think does not match with images of Silene nigrescens as per the following:
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/201680/
Could it be Silene setisperma?

Does not seem to match with Isotype as well as at FOI. Though it seems close to images at Id300910ns01
It should be Silene indica as per images herein.

Silene cashmeriana? ABJUL2017/10 : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (12)
I started seeing this campion from 3100m up. There are three different individuals in this post and I hope that I haven't confused things. To me these all belong to the same species, which looking at ... description should be Silene cashmeriana. Please advise.
Silene cashmeriana?
Near Snowline and Ilaqa, Dharamshala, HP
3100m and above
10-11 July 2017

Your images are always so refreshing. 
I would suggest S. indica comparing with my images of S. cashmeriana from Kashmir (longer petals, more lobes):
And images of S. indica
Thank you ... for the comparative images. I do see that S. cashmeriana has broader overlapping petals while my sample has good separation between the petals.
