Please id it 

Again Chaerophyllum. Lower leaves should help. 




Habitat: sloping meadow
Habit: herb about 30 – 40 cm high, flower 2 – 3 mm across

Close up of fruit should help.

Unfortunately no fruit found in any views,

Chaerophyllum sp.

Yes the habit does look like Chaerophyllum, but difficult to say without close up. Also I have never seen pinkish flowers in Chaerophyllum.

Chaerophyllum species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net) 

Perhaps Chaerophyllum sp.

The plant has resemblance to Chaerophyllum hirsutum ‘Roseum’Please check this link:  http://www.junglekey.fr/search.php?query=Chaerophyllum&type=image&lang=fr&region=fr&img=1&adv=1

Thank you very much … for the hint to ID, and for the useful link.

Can this plant be Prangos bucharica
Kindly have a look on below link

Difficult to comment without fruits. This species is not reported from our area. The other species common in Ladakh has yellow flowers.

Can this plant be Carum carvi.
I have also seen the dry seeds of this plant which resembles Carum
carvi in the below link:
The leaves of the picture also resembles

I don’t think Carum. It looks Chaerophyllum only. Carum plants are smaller with much narrower segments.
