this is Pinda concanensis

Requesting to please ID this plant with white flowers captured at Lohagad near Pune in August 2013.


This is the Konkan Pinda [Pinda concanensis].


This is Pinda concanensis. Family : Apiaceae (Umbelliferae)


Yes Very nice pictures of Pinda concanensis


This should be Polyzygus or Heracleum species, not a Pinda. 


To me it is Pinda concanensis.
I am posting pics separately of what I believe is Heracleum sp. Please confirm.


Some additional photographs attached.


The plant is surely Pinda concanensis which is the most common herb on hill tops of Western ghats during monsoon.
Also one of the most common in Lonavala and Khandala region
