Friends,
On July 5, 2010 I had uploaded a plant as Cotula anthemoides from Kashmir, growing along roadsides and waste places. The leaves resemble Anthemis, but the heads are different.
On May 11, 2012 I reported the correct identification as Matricaria matricarioides (Less.) Porter ex Britt.
I again uploaded it on June 11, 2013 during Asteraceae Fortnight
There has been a lot of confusion between M. matricarioides (Less.) Porter ex Britt. and M. discoidea DC, whereas Flora of China had earlier considered M. matricarioides as accepted name, it has now changed it to M. discoidea DC. following Flora of North America with the comment.
A detailed study of the plant by our team from Kashmir, has finally concluded that our plant id in fact M. discoidea (syn: M. matricarioides auct.) and we published it as new report for India.

I will share the reprint when received.
