Nice to see another colour in Thalictrum

The Thalictrum reniforme is confusing with the Thalictrum chelidonii.
Please check the following two link for the T. chelidonii and T. reniforme from the eflora of China. Then only it is possible to finalize the species.

This should be Thalictrum reniforme. All other closer species, T. chelidonii, T. delavayi, are hairless – the pictures here show a prominently pubescent plant.
The only sticky point is that Flora of China mentions the length of the flower-stalks of Thalictrum reniforme, as 0.8–2.5 mm. I suspect that is an error – it should be 0.8–2.5 cm – but that has to be checked from some other source.
