Dear friends,
 
Requesting ID of Asteraceae plant growing at Vaghbil, Thane (Maharashtra).
Habitat near creek side lining rice fields and mangrove.
The erect much branched herb standing about a metre high, with slightly woody branches.
 
Two sets of photos attached: (1) 17 NOV 09 and (2) 18 DEC 08.
Number of photos too many ... hoping to make it easier for ID.
 
Referencing Shrikant ji's FFOS, putting my own wild guess: Lamprachaenium microcephalum (quite a tongue-twisting genus name !!)
 
Regards.

Hello,
 
This one is something else, and not Lamprachaenium microcephalum.
Am attaching images of Lamprachaenium microcephalum for comparison.
Lamprachaenium microcephalum is commonly called Purple blue heads.
The leaves are tomentose beneath. 
 
best regards
 
Adittya Dharap

Dear friends,

Putting here Shrikant ji's response:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Dinesh, the Asteraceae found in saline fields seems to be Blumea atropurpurea Haines. I need to have the herbarium image or the original description to match the specimen. If you can retrieve the following,
1. Bot. Bihar & Orissa 469. 1922 [2:492.1961 (Repr.)]
2. Fl. Ind. Enum. Aster. 14. 1988
3. J. Econ. Tax. Bot. 14:732.1990
-------------------------------------------------------------------

... expecting Rajdeo ji to reconsider B. obliqua and B. atropurpurea fo getting to the ID.

Regards
Dinesh

Rajdeo ji ... please consider giving your thoughts about Shrikant ji's response:

Hi Dinesh, the Asteraceae found in saline fields seems to be Blumea atropurpurea Haines. I need to have the herbarium image or the original description to match the specimen. If you can retrieve the following,

1. Bot. Bihar & Orissa 469. 1922 [2:492.1961 (Repr.)]
2. Fl. Ind. Enum. Aster. 14. 1988
3. J. Econ. Tax. Bot. 14:732.1990
-------------------------------------------------------------------


Regards
Dinesh

I will go for Blumea obliqua (L.) Druce as per images, details and references herein.
Blumea atropurpurea looks different as per GBIF specimens
