Delphinium pyramidale Royle ??

I think yes as per images at Delphinium pyramidale and as per GBIF  specimen from Nepal & POWO specimens- one and two.

Seen this beautiful herb en-route Dhel Pass at an altitude of approx. 3600m.
Bot. name: Delphinium brunonianum ??
Family: Ranunculaceae.

Not able to confirm the species.
In Uttarakhand we found this species only above 4400m, usually in scree slopes.

According to Flora of Kullu District by Dhaliwal and Sharma, it may be Delphinium cashmeriana.

I fear we have a mixture of D. brunonianum and D. cashmerianum here. Number 3 with glandular hairs and 7 with deeply divided closely deeply crenate leaves suggest D. brunonianum. 4, 5, 6 look like D. cashmerianum. Perhaps population based distinction of photographs by … may help.

To me appears more closer to images and details at Delphinium pyramidale Royle


ID request -27102010-PKA1:
Came across this herb very close to Hampta pass (Altitude approx 13750 ft). These are the only photographs available.
Date /Time: 28-09-2010 / 11:00AM
Location: On the way to Hampta pass (approx 13850 ft), Manali region
Habitat: Wild
Plant habit: Herb

Delphinium brunonianum I assume.

Delphinium brunonianum indeed

I would go with D. cashmerianum. D. brunonianum has much paler flowers.

I thought I can see some glandular hairs!! and purple blue veins on flowers too. But I may be wrong..

To me appears more closer to images and details at Delphinium pyramidale Royle
