Dear Mr. Garg,

It does not seem matching and not listed in Nepal. Leaves are
prickly spiny.

Could it be ordinary  Sonchus asper (Linnaeus) Hill  ??

Thank you.

If we go by glandular hairy stem & head, it is close to images at Sonchus wightianus DC.

Dear Mr. Garg,

In Sonchuswightianus DC.  the flower buds are hairy whereas 
it is spiny in this case. Also leaves are prickly spiny whereas not 
in the case of Sonchuswightianus DC. .
Besides this elevation is not matching according to the FoI and the
checklist of Nepal.



Thank you.

That is the best I find it close to after pursuing all the threads in this and other Sanchez pages. I think this species also have two varieties.
