Pimpinellatomentosa Dalzell ex C.B.Clarke, Fl. Brit. India 2: 689 1879. (Syn: Heracleumtomentosum Dalzell & A.Gibson);
India (NW-Ghats (Maharashtra)) as per Catalogue of Life;
This would be Scandix stellata.
… any characteristic that rules out Pimpinella wallichiana ?
Not Scandix stellata atleast, which has only 1-3 rays (as against ca 10 here) and sessile flowers (long pedicelled here).
I too think its Pimpinella tomentosa… Apiaceae family
… many thanks to all for comments … Shweta ji, any comment on differing number of umbels in plants being compared ?
Umbels vary from 5-10 as per the references….
Many many thanks … convinced !!!
