Some species of Bupleurum, I suppose
I wonder whether this genus is recorded from the area.
yes … there are two species Bupleurum wightii and Bupleurum plantaginifolium are reported from Bori and Pachamari area in Flora of Pachmari and Bori Reserves by BSI, I think this is Bupleurum wightii.

Is the name correct? or does it have any revised synonym?
This plant is Bupleurum wightii, but in the link you will get hold the page related to Bupleurum from the Flora of Eastern Ghat from there u may also get the name of two new indian species.
I hope this can be any Bupleurum species.

i had collected this specimen from Kalahandi, South Orissa.
Details: Height-up to 34 ft
Altitude: 800 to 1200 met.
– Bupleurum species, Apiaceae, most probably B. falcatum Species recorded from the area may be checked.
– Bupleurum falcatum
thanks for the conformation.
Bupleurum falcatum is not reported from India as per Catalogue of life
So it has to be something different.
Bupleurum falcatum in FBI had three varieties
var: marginata (Wall.) Hook.f., leaves with cartilaginous margins, middle cauline leaves often amplexcaule but narrowed towards base…..now synonym for Bupleurum marginatum Wall. ex DC.
var. hoffmeisteri Klotz., cauline leaves less acuminate, numerous, scarcely amplexicaule,carpels gaucous with prominent ridges, now synonym for Bupleurum marginatum Wall. ex DC.
var. nigrocarpa (Jacq.) Hook.f, stemens numerous from crown, leaves amplexicaule broadest at base, bracts 3-4, half-ripe fruits purple-black, synonym for Bupleurum gracillimum Klotzsch & Garcke
I think this should be Bupleurum ramosissimum var. wightii (Mukh.) S.S.R.Bennet as per images, details and references herein.
