Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise please.

Some earlier relevant feedback:      

 I think it represents Blumea lacera

santhosh
 Reply from Another thread:
 
  • "Similar to B. lacera but easily distinguished by the small heads, purplish flowers....." (F. B.I.)
  • "Heads numerous, pappus white, heads more or less clustered..... corolla purplish... leaves obovate, irregularly toothed or serrate...." (Bengal Plants)
I think the above post is of Blumea wightiana DC.
Thank you,
Regards,
surajit
