Plant for ID SMP2 – 26/03/2011: Tamhini
I think you are correct
attaching images of Apiaceae member for identification. please identify
Pl. check comparative images at Apiaceae & Angelica, Bupleurum, Chaerophyllum, Daucus, Eryngium, Heracleum, Pimpinella, Selinum & Seseli
Fair chance of it being Pinda/ Polyzygs sp., most likely P. concanensis [Pinda concanensis (Dalzell) P.K. Mukh. & Constance].
With available data it will always remain a guess.
This is definitely not Pinda, my apologies.
Pls inform location of collection. My 1st guess is Pimpinella wallichiana.
location mountain top, height about 3 feet
I think my id will be correct then. P.wallichiana is a tall and attractive apiaceae member. Chordate leaves also match
On perusal of comparative images at Pimpinella
I find it is more closer to Pimpinella adscendens Dalzell rather than Pimpinella wallichiana (Miq. ex Hofaen.) Gandhi in C.J. Saldanha & Nicolson
Thanks, … for the initial Id.
Thanks …, But … has mentioned that the plant was 3 ft tall and had chordate leaves. P.adscendens is neither 3 ft tall nor has chordate leaves.
Thanks, … Leaves & habit are visible in the posted pictures.
Thank you all, … i din’t mention that leaves are cordate, i just mentioned that in flora of Nashik leaves of P wallichiana are described as cordate (leaves in the images dont look so) any way good discussion so we settle for Pimpinella adscendens Dalzell
Sorry …, But I still go with P.wallichiana. P.adsecdens, as I have seen in and around nashik, is a very small plant which trails on the ground and inflorescence stalk rising upwards. Locally people call it ‘Gaajri’ and the leaves are edible.

I think this is from Apiaceae family, but cannot place the exact species.
please help in identification
height:about 2-3 ft.
Thanks, … Pl. Check comparative images in efi at Apiaceae page.
I had already tried the Apiaceae page but was unable to find any matching images. May be it is Pimpinella sp.. Any hint would be ideal
I think close to images at Pimpinella adscendens Dalzell
Also looks close as per high resolution specimen at
