Location: Jumla, West Nepal
Altitude: 3000m.

Caltha palustris var. himalaica Tamura ??

POWO does not mention it separately.

Yes, appears close as per images at Caltha palustris
Looks different from FoC illustration of Caltha scaposa Hook. f. & Thomson as per the Checklist of Nepal and Caltha govaniana Wall. ex Royle is reported at much high elevation.
