Contributor Text: I.C. Hedge & A. Paton
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: May-July.
Type: Type: [India] Kumaon, [Wall. Cat. 2137. 1829] R. Blinkworth (E!, K).
Distribution: Distribution: E. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, NW India.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Not to be confused with any other of our species on account of the entire linear leaves, usually with clusters of young leaves in their ails, and pinkish flowers. Although pressed specimens give the impression that the inflorescence is composed of secund flowers, it is in fact 4-sided and the nutlets have the characteristic indumentum of other species of the four-sided group (i.e. species 8-16).
