Dear members,
Am posting photo of a herb which I think is Potentilla indica '
Photos taken in last week of March and 2nd April
Habit: Hairy herb. Hairs sparse and appressed on upper surface of leaf. Sepals 10 in two whorls. Five sepals in outer whorl are three lobed. Five sepals in inner whorl are lanceolate and acuminate. Petals yellow. Fruit is a red berry resembling a strawberry but of insipid taste. Inner whorl of sepals appressed to fruit which led me to mistake it for the fruit of Fragaria nubicola
Kindly confirm if the ID is correct.

Am reposting photos of fruits which I had wrongly posted in October last year as fruits of Fragaria nubicola as there were no flowers then.

Yes, 3-lobed epicalyx and insipid fruit are very distinctive.
