Androsace-1 in Chamoli district of Garhwal : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)
In addition I am also attaching two more images (Androsace-1 and ...) for your comments on the ID. Androsace-1 was photographed at an elevation of 4800m in Chamoli district of Garhwal in first week of September and it was close to a ridge top on steep slope
Other than confirming that this is not Androsace mucronifolia, I cannot meaningfully comment further.
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.
