Flower: 0.3cm across
Date: 28 Jul 2012

Perhaps it is Angelica sp.


May be some Sanicula species as images appear similar to Sanicula elata


Cicuta sp? i hope its not Cicuta maculata

my god, how did it ever get here? but 
And it may be what we already have seen in FOi here : 
Cicuta virens or cowbane
Can you talk with Muthu and get more info?


Does not look like S. elata !


Thanks, …,
But it looks different from Cicuta virosa as per
http://www.freenatureimages.eu/Plants/Flora%20C/Cicuta%20virosa%2C%20Cowbane/index.html


This appears to be Sanicula elata Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don (syn. S. europea var. elata). It is common in temperate regions of W.Ghats (Nilgiri and Pulney hills) above 1500 m altitude.


The species is identified as Pimpinella heyneana (DC.) Benth. Common species in evergreen forests.
