Corydalis lathyroides Prain is an accepted species of Corydalis and rare in India. It is known from few localities in Bhutan, Nepal and Uttarakhand. In Uttarakhand it is known from Ralam Valley (Pithoragarh) and Rambara near Kedarnath (reported by us; Rawat, D.S., Nautiyal, D.C. and Gaur, R.D. 1996. A note on Corydalis IathyroidesPrain. J. Econ. Tax. Bot.20 : 119-121; picture-3).
During last few years I also noticed it in two more localities- Sunderdhunga Valley (Bageshwar district, picture-2) and Chandaniya Ghutt (Chamoli, picture-1).
It seems that no picture of this species exists on web.
It is new for eFI database.
