I think we found the same flower at around 4000 m in Sikkim.
Unidentified yet.

You are right Gurcharan ji. I have photographed Gypsophila
cerastioides so many times, but still get deceived.

Sir, I got confused because of the i.d from Dalhousie for Gypsophila
cerastoides which had no pink veins and the leaves too seemed
different.. posting them again for comparison

Alok JI
Be prepared to ignore small variations. In your first photographs darker veins can be seen in the lower flower even in the thumbnail

Thank you for the pointer sir...
though one never knows... especially for a novice like me .. when there
are small variations which can differentiate species... will take time
and patience to learn all that..
Regards
Alok
