This is a winter season herb, though I could not record it from anywhere else than a single locality of Morni Hills in Haryana, Ranunculus arvensis


Very specific achenes with hooked spines on margin. Never seen in Uttarakhand, though known to occur here. Nice upload.

I found these growing among the wheat crops at about 1900m. The size of the flowers, leaves and the claw-like pods point to R. arvensis. Please advise.
