Corydalis sp. for ID (fr. Churdhar) : VG-JUL-09 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)
Sharing some images of an attractive herb from our recent trek to Churdhar Peak.
Photographed en route to the summit on 26 May 2015.
Would appreciate any help with the specific id.
It is Corydalis govaniana (Govan’s Corydalis)
upper Chamba identifications al280811:
May be Corydalis cornuta
Please show a close up with spur in view.
Corydalis govaniana by any chance?
Here are the differences
C. cornuta C. govaniana
Plant procumbent with long strangling branches Plant erect
Flowers yellow with dark tips, 1.2-2 cm long Flowers yellow without dark tips, 2.5 cm long
Spur almost as long as posterior petal Spur half as long as posterior petal
capsule oblong obovate, 10-12 mm long Capsule oblong, 10-15 mm long
With more close ups perhaps this may be resolved.
That’s too close….. 🙂
The best I can do sir…
I think I will go with C. cornuta, the spur seems pretty long in one or more flowers where it is visible. The tips of leaf segments are more or less pointed in this species, not so in C. govaniana in which also the stem leaves are not more than two.
I think it does not match with images at Corydalis cornuta
It is more closer to images of Corydalis govaniana as per the following:
Taken on 8/5/07, on way to Zirmi Thaatch (11000 ft.) in Himachal during Sar Pass Trek.

Flora of Uttarakhand- Corydalis govaniana ?: Wild Herb captured on 13/8/10 during the trek from Ghangaria (around 11,000 ft.) to Hemkunt Sahib (around 14000 ft.).
C. govaniana has ercet robust habit, 0-2 cauline leaves (with leaves mostly radical), erect robust inflorescence and curved spur. Wikimedia Commons
This one looks to me as C. ramosa Wall ex Hook.f. & Thoms.
This appears to be Corydalis govaniana as per comparative images at Corydalis
VOF Week: Corydalis sp. –en-route Hemkund Sahib: This the 4th set of Corydalis sp. This could also turn out to be similar to other corydalis sp. posted by me.
Perhaps Corydalis moorcroftiana
