Oenanthe javanica
Water Dropwort
Family – Apiaceae
Habitat – Found growing across ravines
Photographed at Hamirpur, Himachal Pradesh
Altitude – 800meters asl
Dated – 15June2018

Yes it is Oenanthe javanica


… there are two subspecies mentioned in Flora of China , so may be images are different as there are different subspecies.
Here’s the link from Flora of China

Yes, appears so.


Appears to be some Seseli species.
Two species listed in Nepal are Seseli indicum Wight & Arn. syn. of Seseli diffusum (Roxb. ex Sm.) Santapau & Wagh (India (Plains of India), S-Nepal, Pakistan (I), Myanmar [Burma] )
Seseli trilobum (Edgew.) C. B. Clarke syn. of Seseli nudum (Lindl.) M. G. Pimenov & E. V. Kljuykov (SW-Tibet, NW-India (W-Himalaya), Jammu & Kashmir (Zanskar), W-Nepal, Pakistan (Chitral))

While taking a bity of rest lying down, I got this idea about your unidentified Apiaceae species and about Seseli, Oenanthe and Selinum species.
So finally it is Oenanthe javanica as per images, details and references herein.

I have gone through the description in both Flora of China  & Flora of Pakistan and satisfied about this id now.

Attaching a collage of Oenanthe stolonifera (WATER PARSELY/ WATER DROPWORT)

Can this also be Oenanthe linearis as per FOI ?


I think looks different from image of Oenanthe linearis as per FOI


Looks different! Elevation, date, location ? Separate images instead of collage would have been better.


Thank you … Noted for action.

To me appears close.

Looks matching !


I find number of flowers in one umbellules is less, i.e., 11-13 only compared to net images and drawing from FoC.


I was having doubts about it, in view of recent id of your same species plant.

But it is Ok as per GBIF specimen

It is a highly variable plant as far as leaves are concerned as I found it has around 2500 observations in GBIF.

Which Apeaceae ??
Sorry for low quality of images.

Osmorhiza sp. Osmorhiza aristata ?

case was discovered and is in RBG


Thank you … I shall check.


Pl. also check comparative images at Apiaceae


Pl. check Oenanthe javanica (Blume) DC. To me appears similar.
It may be some related species as per Checklist of Nepal.

Pl. check Oenanthe hookeri C. B. Clarke and Oenanthe thomsonii C. B. Clarke


Yes! It is matching. Oenanthe javanica (Blume) DC.


It may be some other species from this genus.


I checked and feel that it is close to O. javanica compared to others listed in Nepal. Oenanthe


OK. Thanks.


You seems to be right as other two species look different as per
I was having doubts about it, in view of recent id of your same species plant.

Saw this Apiaceae member along the Govindghat – Ghangaria trail, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.
Requested to please provide ID.

Pl. check comparative images at


Tried but failed to match any species as per comparative images at Apiaceae


Any idea about the genus?

Pl. check Oenanthe javanica (Blume) DC.


The leaves look different from the ones in the efi pics. Also, leaves are trifoliate.
Can this be something else?

Thanks, …, It is a highly variable plant as far as leaves are concerned as I found it has around 3500 observations in GBIF. Pl. check variability in efi site also at Oenanthe javanica (Blume) DC.
Also see FOP illustration in this regard.

I think id is OK.

While flora-watching (I have borrowed this term from …), and I can assure you that this is as much rewarding as is birdwatching, yesterday in Sonepat, Haryana, I came across quite a few plants which I am not able to ID yet.
This one was growing adjacent to an irrigation channel towards the shady area.

ID help requested please.


Some Pimpinella species from Apiaceae?


Thank you …,

It looks like Pimpinella saxifraga at link


Leaves are different.

See the illustration at Botanical


I also came across such a plant in Hisar, Haryana. I think it is
Cicuta virosa
Ref: FOI


Thanks, …
Links for Cicuta virosa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicuta_virosa (Wikipedia link),

It looks close to images, references and details at Oenanthe javanica

I guess you are right …!

Polyzygus tuberosus Dalzell is a syn. of Pinda concanensis (Dalzell) P.K.Mukh. & Constance, from which it looks different.
Appears to be some Seseli species.

Looks like POWO illustration is different. POWO


Being low resolution, it is difficult to see whether it has been correctly connected and named.

Thanks, …, I am also not convinced with this id. 

Also looks different from high resolution specimens at

I think this may be Oenanthe javanica (variable species as far as leaves are concerned as can be seen from GBIF). This is also reported from South India as per

Sending photos of a plant belonging to Apiceae family, highly aromaticcollected from Kedarnath region near Rambara 3200 m (Uttarakhand) on slopes amidst Balsams. Kindly help in identification of the same. The plant was collected in September, 2011


Looks more like an Araliaceae to me…..Any Aralia?? Not sure though!
Wait for more comments plz.


I think … is correct, I also think its not from Apiaceae


may be …
ginseng family resemblance…
did you get see the roots and photograph them?


No … I have no pictures of roots


May be some of the Panax or Acanthopanax.


It could be Aralia apioides of Araliaceae family

http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=94520&flora_id=2


Looking at the size of the plant it looks like Apiaceae


I think it appears close to Oenanthe javanica as per images and details herein.
