I photographed this plant believing it to be a cress on the Kareri trek. I started finding it above 2500m and saw it till 3200m approx. I am unable to find a match. Please help identify it.
Kareri Lake trek,

Any Rorippa species ?
Please wait for fruits, only fruits can rule out Brassica or establish otherwise…!!
Comparative images of Brassica species so far in efi
Closer to Barbarea in Brassicaceae.
Thank you … for this advice. I will do some research and see if I can come closer to the species.
Pl. check for Barbarea orthoceras Ledebour in FOC, but no distribution give for India here:
Thank you … for the links. I will study these and report back soon.
Only 2 sp, Barbarea vulgaris W.T.Aiton and Barbarea vulgaris W.T.Aiton have got distribution in India and I guess it is close to Barbarea vulgaris W.T.Aiton.
Barbarea intermedia Boreau ??
Yes, appears close as per images and details at Barbarea intermedia and as per GBIF specimens (from India– one and two)- three, four.
