Came across this plant at the rock wall of Nandgiri (Kalyangad) Fort near Satara.
The plant was seen to be emerging from the rock. Looks like some Apiaceae sp.

It looks like a Pimpinella sp. possibly Pimpinella wallichiana var. katrajensis [or even P.wallichiana locally called Ranjire].


This is Pimpinella wallichiana but I am not aware of its variety
