4 AUG 12
Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail … about 8400 ft
Habitat: mountain slope
Habit: herb, about 1 – 1.5 m high; flower about 2 mm across
… rain and poor light made it difficult to get close-up view of flower … will be happy to know ID to genus level
I hope Bupleurum candollei
Close up of flower umblet should help.
Cropped version; hopefully it helps.
Not B. candollei
More likely Bupleurum lanceolatum
Since bractlets below the flower umbelets are almost missing, it should be Bupleurum lanceolatum

Bupleurum lanceolatum Wall. ex DC.
along Ghangaria – Govind Ghat trail on August 4, 2012
VOF Week: Apiaceae sp for ID— en-route Govindghat-Ghangaria route: This is yet another Apiaceae sp seen along “Govindghat-Ghangaria route“. This was looking more like a climbing herb with slender stem.
may be Heracleum wallichii?????
Associated leaves are simple, plus you can see small flowers with yellow tinge and small almost ovoid fruits without wings. It is Bupleurum sp.
I think it should be Bupleurum lanceolatum Wall. ex DC. as per images, details and references herein.
This herb is from higher Himalaya of Garhwal region, photo taken on 10-8-2010.
It does not look like B. falcatum in which leaves are linear, falcate and both involucre bracts and involucel bracts minute. I had uploaded it a few days back from Kashmir.
Perhaps snaps of lower leaves may help.
I think the 4th image may be of Bupleurum hamiltonii N.P.Balakr. as per images, details and references herein.
2nd and 3rd image may be of Bupleurum lanceolatum Wall. ex DC. as per images, details and references herein.
