Surajit ji , I photographed d same weed at  Betul, MP ( In Dec 11) and then at Pune  ( Jan 12).
Attaching my pics.

I think it's-- Synedrella nodiflora ( Asteraceae ) Or Cinderella Weed.
 
Some expert can conform this.

Neha ji,
I doubt it is  Synedrella nodiflora ( Asteraceae ). Take some more clear photographs.

Thank you Sir for continuing the discussion.

I regret that my camera (10 MP, 5X compact) fails to generate better and larger photographs of this plant though i tried a number of times. The florets are too small to be magnified considerably by the macro feature of my camera.

Regards,

Surajit Koley

Sir,

This thread has two sets of photographs, one set was uploaded by me and the other was Neha Ji. I am not sure if both the plants are same. Three concerned species are -
  1. Synedrella nodiflora (L.) Gaertn.
  2. Calyptocarpus vialis Less.
  3. Sclerocarpus africanus Jacq.

While Bengal Plants features the 1st one Flora of British India features 1st and 3rd. I couldn't find Calyptocarpus vialis Less. in these books.

  • In Synedrella nodiflora (L.) Gaertn., heads are sessile, axillary and terminal
  • In Calyptocarpus vialis Less. , heads seems to be terminal, I am not sure, please check -

Regards,
surajit
