Not Sure, perhaps Callianthemum pimpinelloides (D. Don) Hook. f. & Thomson from Kashmir
Plz validate…

Thanks for sharing …

Very hard to say.  Just one VERY POOR image. Is it the fruits or gone-over flower which is thought MIGHT be Callianthemum?

Yet again, no location, altitude or month is provided.
The foliage seen is certainly NOT Callianthemum.
MUCH better and MANY more photos required, with good close-ups of flowers or fruits and foliage are required to be in a position to comment meaningfully.
Cannot justify devoting any more time to it.


id request: seems different from Gagea: 2 images- one high res.
please check the attached image. It seems different from Gagea in respect to leaves and the arrangement of anthers around the stigma.

Not Gagea at least !

Genus is confirmed, it matches with Callianthemum.

According to FOP there are 2 species of same, , and it seems Callianthemum alatavicum  for me
please validate, highly thankful. 

Callianthemum pimpinelloides (D.Don ex Royle) Hook.f. & Thomson! 

Keys can be seen in Flora of Pakistan, based on petal apex.

To me petals appear to be pointed and not truncated, so it should be Callianthemum pimpinelloides (Pl. see other references here).
Looks different from Callianthemum alatavicum as per
