VoF Week :: DV :: 04 AUG 12 – 1002 :: tiny white-flowered tall herb along Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail: 4 AUG 12
Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail … about 7800 ft
Habitat: mountain slope
Rubia or Galium, only close up of flower or leaves well in focus can help.
Could get only one photo cropped to see flower – not much in focus. No views of leaves found.
Won’t be surprised if it turns out to be Galium aparine. I can see hooked hairs on young ovary also.
It look me Sanicula europea
Looking at three leaflets in last picture, may be yes Sanicula europaea.
