Location:  Phulchoki, Lalitpur
Date:  3 July 2019
Elevation:  2657 m.
Habit : Wild
Which Apiaceae ?

Does not look like matching with any Selinium listed in Nepal, specially leaf pattern.
Selinum and S. tenuifolium.

I hope there is no mix up of images of two species in posting.

No mix up …!

Pl. check Oreocome striata (syn. Selinum dissectum (DC.) Wall. ex C. B. Clarke) as per GBIF and Selinum candollii DC. (syn. of Ligusticopsis wallichiana (DC.) Pimenov & Kljuykov) as per
http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=115248&flora_id=5
Also check Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne

Key to the species of Oreocome from Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne
1. Bracts 4-10 . . . . . . 2
– Bracts lacking .  . . . . 4
2. Umbels 8-16-rayed; mericarp ribs equal or almost equal, usually short-winged; fruits small, 2.9-4 mm long .. . . . . . 1. O. striata
– Umbels 20-45-rayed; marginal mericarp ribs winged, dorsal clearly narrower; fruits 4.5-8 mm long . .. . 3
3. Calyx teeth filiform, longer than stylopodia; styles up to 1.5 mm long; mesocarp cell walls without pits; stems thin, up to 6 mm in diam. . . . 2. O. hindukushensis
– Calyx teeth lanceolate-triangular to lanceolate-linear, shorter than stylopodia; styles up to 0.7 mm long; mesocarp cell walls with pits; stems thick, 15-25 mm in diam…. 3. O. candollei
4. Bracteoles lanceolate, longer than umbellets; terminal leaf lobes linear-lanceolate to linear; stems, petioles and petiolules pubescent. . . .. 4. O. involucellata
– Bracteoles linear-lanceolate to linear, shorter than umbellets; terminal leaf lobes broader, toothed; stems pubescent only below umbels or glabrous …………..5
5. Umbels 20-45-rayed; marginal ribs 3-4 times larger than dorsal; secretory ducts in valleculas 1-2. . . . . 5. O. limprichtii
– Umbels 10-16-rayed; marginal and dorsal ribs almost equal; secretory ducts in valleculas 2-3 . . . . .O. depauperata
Key to the species of Ligusticopsis from Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne
1. Leaves 2-3-pinnatisect; terminal leaf lobes 7-14 mm long, 3-7 mm broad, rhombic to ovate-lanceolate, at the margin with several teeth or lobed; stylopodia at the margin not waved, slightly thickened; mericarp marginal ribs slightly tumid at the ends. .. . . 1. L. wallichiana
– Leaves 4-pinnatisect; terminal leaf lobes 2.5-3.5 mm long, 0.6-0.8 mm broad, lanceolate-linear to linear, entire or with 1-3 teeth; stylopodia at the margin waved, not thickened; mericarp marginal ribs thin. . . . . 2. L. coniifolia

I think it should be Selinum wallichianum as per images, details and references herein.

I guess Ligusticopsis wallichiana (DC.) Pimenov & Kljuykov is a good match.
Syn: Selinum wallichianum (DC.) Raizada & Saxena

On further working for days on Selinum of Nepal, I got more clarity in the matter after going through Keys, details and distribution to the species from Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne
It is Oreocome candollei (syn: Selinum candollei DC.) (Bhutan, Nepal, India (W Himalaya: Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh), Pakistan) (Rays 20-45 as per Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne) as per description in Flora of Pakistan (Involucre of 5-12 long linear, white margined bracts compared to Involucre of 1 or 2 linear bracts or lacking of Selinum wallichianum (DC.) E. Nasir, to which it is confused).
It also matches with images in Flora of Nepal on searching with Selinum candollei DC. at
Note. – In the southern, rather wet slope of Annapurna we found both Oreocome candollei and Ligusticopsis wallichiana in very close or even the same localities in high-herbaceous subalpine stony meadows. In spite of essential differences particularly in fruit characters (see Results, above), moreover in stem and root structure, both species appear very similar. The characters of stem and root structure can hardly be observed in herbarium material.

This tall herb was recorded from near Valley of Flowers..
can this be Selinum vaginatum ??


efi page on Selinum vaginatum     


Leaving aside 1st images (which is of Selinum filicifolium (Edgew.) Nasir), this should be Selinum wallichianum (DC.) Raizada & H.O. Saxena as per keys at Flora of Pakistan

Saw this Apiaceae member near Ghangaria, Uttarakhand in Aug 2018. Requested to please provide ID. Is this Selinum wallichianum?

Images of Selinum wallichianum look different from images in Flora of Nepal on searching on Selinum wallichianum at
Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne says as below:

Thank you …, I hope this would be very helpful in identifying Selinum sp.

Pl. check comparative images at Apiaceae


I think closer to Oreocome candollei (Wall. ex DC.) Edgew. as per comparative images at Apiaceae 


Leaf pattern looks slightly different and elevation and the flowering phenology.


yes. leaf is similar to oreocome candollei. not to angelica‎

Fwd: oreocome-candollei – All links says Ligusticopsis wallichi… : 3 posts by 3 authors.
All links says Ligusticopsis wallichiana (DC.) Pimenov & Kljuykov is the accepted name.

I have purposely kept it as Oreocome candollei (Wall. ex DC.) Edgew.Selinum candollei Wall. ex DC. Cortia candollei (Wall. ex DC.) Leute = Oreocome elata Edgew. Selinum elatum (Edgew.) M. Hiroe as per Himalayan species of Selinum L. sl – BioOne (Willdenowia, 31(1) : 101-124, 2001) – Michael G. Pimenov, Eugene V. Kljuykov, and Tatiana A. Ostroumova, as there is lot of confusion following the databases like Catalogue of Life, The Plant List etc.
Pl. go through the publication.


OK …!

Pl. check comparative images at the family page.


Selinum wallichianum (DC.) Raizada & H.O.Saxena?
Only this is listed in the book of this genus !


Yes, Appears close to images at Oreocome candollei (Wall. ex DC.) Edgew.
Also matches with GBIF specimen- one.
POWO (Ligusticopsis wallichiana (DC.) Pimenov & Kljuykov) gives both as synonyms.
