Requested to please ID this yellow Corydalis seen at various places en route the Valley of flowers from Ghangaria, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018.


Pl. check with species available at 


Corydalis cornuta ??


These looked much different from Corydalis cornuta posted by me here. The plants as well as the flowers were much slender. I think they may be different.


I also agree with …, as these appear to be somewhat different from images at Corydalis cornuta
…, Pl. check other species at Corydalis


C. casimiriana


Isn’t C. cashmeriana blue flower ??


Mostly blue flowers except the link below: 


Thanks … for the possible ID.
All flowers on our site are blue. … posted a link which is yellow. However, none of these flowers look like the ones posted by me. They seem to be quite sturdy in appearance.
The flowers I saw were very delicate and slender.
Lets hope, experts provide us with more feedback.


Do not confuse casimiriana and cashmeriana, the former yellow, the latter blue.
And with all respect, I am the expert.

This is really interesting.


Thank you … for providing the correct name.
And apologies for not paying attention to the correct spelling. The apparent similarity in the names prompted to comment too early.
