Pilea bracteosa Wedd.  

Forgot to put question mark. Pilea bracteosa Wedd. ???

Pl. also check species available at 

Yes ... I did but I guess there is no match on the efi site,.


Not getting id of this Pilea species as per Checklist of Nepal.

Keys in flora of Bhutan lead me to Pilea only.
Leaf pattern does not indicate towards Pilea.
What about Boehmeria sp. ??
I checked earlier, it does not match. 
This one I can only identify as Laportea
Only one sp. Laportea bulbifera (Siebold & Zucc.) Wedd. is listed in Nepal and I hope ID is correct !
Any further opinion from members?
I think you're right …
Nepali Name : पातले सिस्नु  Paatale Sisnu 
पातले सिस्नु - I found in an online Nepali dictionary - it means some wild nettle. Thus the posted plant could be Urtica dioica, please check..
Oh, I missed seeing the discussion reaching the ID of Laportea bulbifera.
