VOF Week: Cuscuta for Id from Valley: This looks to be a different species of Cuscuta, as the colour of stem
as well as of the flowers varies, the size of flowers and stem diameter was also lesser than C. reflexa....
any ideas please....
I hope Cuscuta europaea
Agreed Sir

VoF Week :: DV :: 02 AUG 12 - 1218 :: flowering shrub at Valley of Flowers: 2 AUG 12
Valley of Flowers ... about 11000 - 12000 ft
Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: shrub, cannot recollect height; flower about 5 - 7 mm across ... wild guess: member of Polygonaceae
Interesting find ... Good - sharp photographs. Did U use yr new camera?
Yes, used both cameras. Close-ups with the new one Lumix G3 - wide with the earlier G1.
....sorry to have doubts.....to me this seems very likely that..the flowers belong to Cuscuta and not the shrub...
Very true ... I am rubbing my eyes now !!
I mistook the flowers to belong to the shrub.
Thank you very much.
Many thanks to ... for his upload of Cuscuta europaea var. indica Engelm. (synonym of Cuscuta europaea L.)

Thanks ... The flowers were so closely attached to the shrub that I was at complete loss to guess any thing.
