Yes, this is Euphorbia stracheyi Boiss.,
occurring at 3500 - 4800 m altitude in the Himalayas from Uttarkhand to Sikkim.
The plant shows variation in the colour of cyathia and upper leaves from yellowish green, olive green, orange red to dark purplish, probably due to the severity of the cold in the habitat.
