OK.  Scents/smells can be so important in confirming identifications in 
Apiaceae (Umbelliferae)but without views of foliage and close-ups of mature 
fruits then difficult to do more than speculate.

Dear all,
I just remembered the scent was  something like Cumin, I guess it may be Carum 
carvi Linnaeus, Sp.

Thank you.

Forwarding again for Id assistance please.Some earlier relevant feedback:       
| Would have helped to be able to see foliage, particularly at base.  "Saunf" 
(Foeniculum vulgare) is cultivated on the plains to 2100m but not in Ladakh - I 
do not think there is a wild equivalent here.  Likewise "Jeera" (Cyminum 
cymium) is sparingly cultivated in gardens at lower levels but not Ladakh.  
Again, I do not know of a wild equivalent.
It is certainly Apiaceae (formerly Umbelliferae) family.  I am speculating a 
bit but wonder about Carum carvi ('Caraway') which is very common in damp 
places in Ladakh to 4200m.  Occurs in W.Himalaya as forma gracile.  Can anyone 
confirm this or suggest different?  Apiaceae are often not easy to be sure 
about. -----From Chadwell ji.  |

Pl. also check with comparative images at ‎Apiaceae   |

Dear Members,
Sharing some pictures for ID shot at Nubra Valley on 21 August 2016.
Is it some sort of wild Jeera or Saunf??
Thank you.
