Meconopsis simplicifolia (D.Don) Walp. ??

It looks different as there are many flowers on the scape.


Thank you forwarding these pictures. I believe they are of Meconopsis pinnatifolia, see here a similar specimen growing a little east in the Ganesh Himal, central Nepal: The Meconopsis Group – (themecgroupadmin.org)
However, I am not sure how far west the plant grows, so it is nice to see a record from Manang district.

Are these correctly identified?
