Thank you … I have seen most of these pictures and am still uncertain. The plants I have photographed here are never well-spread. I see a small cluster of leaves with half a dozen flowers on plants of short stature. I will perhaps need to collect a flower and look at the stigmas and stamens up close.

I guess this is more close to Thalictrum saniculiforme DC. ! Thank you. Saroj Kasaju
I guess this is more close to Thalictrum saniculiforme DC. !

Thank you … for pointing me in the right direction. None of the flora books I own mention this species and I was unaware of it.

I found another Thalictrum sp. as … had suggested. I am not sure which one this is though. T. neurocarpum, perhaps?

This is one more Thalictrum from Chakrata, please suggest id for this..

May be Thalictrum clavatum please check it

Tropicos & efloras does not give its distribution in India.

I think close to images at Thalictrum saniculiforme

Could this be Thalictrum saniculiforme DC. as well ??

That is what I have stated.
