I am uploading another population, from Khillenmarg, Kashmir which is very much similar to my upload from Tungnath:
and also very much similar to one uploaded by Saroj ji from Nepal
All these three populations share similar small habit, plants with more or less spreading branches, basal leaves which are kidney shaped, less than half divided into three lobes, single terminal flower,
My Kashmir population from Khillenmarg, alt. 3000 m, 28-5-2012 is distinct from other two plants that stems and leaves are almost glabrous, with sepals tinged rufous suggesting of R. rufosepalous, although long hairs are missing.
Your opinions please.
