last id’s from Pangi – Al011812: Winter months in Himalayas are ideal for sorting out the data I had collected during the year… and I came across a few more of Pangi flowers… I am sorry that the photos are not very clear… maybe that’s why I did not send it earlier…
Location Pangi Valley
Altitude 3000 mts
Habit herb
Habitat wild

Looks like Angelica glauca

I think the leaves of your plant also resembles Ligusticum species
Have a look on below link

Although these taller umbellifers can be identified mainly on the basis of fruits, but looking at the leaflets it seems … may be right. In both species of Angelica (A. glauca and A. archangelica subsp. himalaica) the leaflets are serrated, here they seem to be various cut.

Looks more similar to Ligusticum thomsonii
Thank you very much indeed… … and … for your kind help and the keys… next time I’ll certainly look for the fruits and also try and take better photos…
