This sorrel was growing among the tall spikes of Nepal Dock and I almost didn’t pay attention. But the leaves are distinctive and I did manage a couple of photos. I think this is Oxyria digyna. Please advise.

Oxyria digyna (Polygonaceae).
… is correct that this is Oxyria digyna (unless of course in the future this ‘species’ is subdivided into various taxa).
‘Flowers of Himalaya’ give its distribution from Pakistan to SW China and N.Temperate zone common on open slopes & grazing grounds.
Stewart found it to be very common in wet soils at high altitudes and useful as greens from 2700-5500m.
‘Flora of Lahaul-Spiti’ says common along water source, in meadows and glacial moraine.
We even have it in the British mountains, where it is known as ‘Mountain Sorrel’ also in damp rocky places esp. beside streams.
