Fwd: Lahoul Geraniums Part I : 7 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3) 
I attach 3 images of Geraniums taken in Lahoul - the first a distant shot of a 'meadow' beside an irrigated field in Miyah Nullah.
Nos 2 & 3 were taken near Patseo.
I know what I consider them to be.  What do other members think?

Disappointed that nobody has suggested an identification.
I shall comment further about my present understanding of Geraniums in Ladakh but for the time-being will say that I am in agreement with the listing by Dickore & Klimes (2005) for Ladakh of:
Geranium himalayense
G.pratense susbp. stewartianum (though have not seen it in Ladakh myself - the nearest being Baltal near Sonamarg at the bottom of the Zoji La)
Geranium regelii
Geranium sibiricum
