Androsace-2 near Badrinath in Chamoli district of Garhwal : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)
Androsace-2 was photographed at an elevation of 3400 m in a glaciated valley near Badrinath in Chamoli district of Garhwal in September and it was found on exposed moderate slope.
I cannot meaningfully comment further at this stage.
I need, at some point, to take a further close look at the genus in the Himalaya, so can add to what I have had to say so far.
This is not something which can be accomplished quickly. There are SO many genera in the Himalaya in need of further study and revision.
Hopefully members will be able to get up into different parts of the Himalaya during 2017 to take more good quality close-up photos of various Androsaces including petals, sepals, foliage, habit and habitat to improve reference material.  
Pity I do not have the funds to travel to the Himalaya and explore for and photograph Androsaces myself - so must rely on the efforts of others.
