While NPGS / GRIN puts this plant as native of the tropics of Africa, Asia through Australia ... http://www.ars-grin.gov/cgi-bin/npgs/html/taxon.pl?401632
PIER puts it otherwise: native of the tropics of the new world ... http://www.hear.org/pier/species/elephantopus_mollis.htm.

Any thoughts ?

Elephantopus scaber L. Sp. Pl. 2: 814. 1753

Type: Lectotype = "Ana-schovadi" in Rheede, Hort. Malab., 10: 13, t. 7, 1690

IPNI says this is cosmopolitan in distribution in tropics so that
means it is found in both New and the Old World. I assume Dinesh sir
already knows about old and new world. What ever may be the case, this
plant was described for the first time from India itself.
