I have my doubts on this being A. paronychioides, the plant I know growing in Kashmir is softer form more like A. pungens with smaller, hairy and soft bracts; leaves are mostly smaller than 2 cm. I sincerely feel the Alternanthera species on our databases need to be sorted out. I would be more comfortable to identify this plant as A. ficoidea.
     I am sorting my specimens and will upload them shortly.

Thanks, Singh ji.
