KAS Week DS_031012_02 Need Id:  These are again yellow sunflower like flowers - but smaller in size.
Please tell me if both the attaches pics are of same flowers or they are different? Need their id please.
The images are with different flowers. First one seems to be Linum mysurens and the other most probably Senecio bombaynensis (syn. S. grahamii)
Yes, ..., first one seems to be Linum mysurens and second one Senecio...

Kas week:: PKA40::- Linum mysorense: Linum mysorense (Family: Linaceae).

Requesting to please provide ID of this small plant with white flowers captured near Satara, Maharashtra in October 2014.
I think, the flowers look like Linum mysurense, is this the white variety or some other completely different?
Agree that they look like Linum mysorensis.
Would like to know from other experts. 

Looks like L. mysurense / mysorense though the flowers I have seen have always been yellow with petals having a notched apex.
From The Plant List database:
Linum mysurense B.Heyne ex Benth. is unresolved name. Linum mysorense B.Heyne ex Wall. is also an unresolved name.
Linum mysorensis does not exist in the above database.
Hope the taxonomists on the group will give a further insight into the nomenclature issue.

Linum mysorense Heyne ex Wall., Numer. List 1507 1829. (Syn: Linum humile Heyne ex Wall.; Linum mysurense B.Heyne ex Benth., Edwards's Bot. Reg. 16: t. 1326 1830.) as per ITIS
