Pedicularis siphonantha

Pedicularis siphonantha D. Don, Prodr. Fl. Nepal. 95 95 1825. (syn: Pedicularis dolichosiphon (Hand.-Mazz.) Li; Pedicularis labellata Benth.; Pedicularis siphonantha f. albiflora H.Wang; Pedicularis siphonantha var. dolichosiphon Hand.-Mazz.); 

China (Sichuan, Yunnan), Tibet, Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Nepal, Chumbi as per Catalogue of Life;

Kashmir to Eastern Himalayas & other places as per Taiwania, 54(2): 122-133, 2009;
 
Tube Lousewort; 
 
Pennell does not record P. siphonantha from Western Himalayas, but Nepal Checklist does. P. siphonantha differs from P. punctata (leaf lobes 4-6 pairs) and P. hookeriana (leaf lobes 6-12 pairs) in corolla tube being more than 4 times as long as calyx.

This paper of 2009, [Taiwania, 54(2): 122-133, 2009] analyses Pedicularis species of Section Siphonanthae. I have attached a sketch from the paper. Pedicularis hookeriana (flower C in the diagram) has a very short flower-tube. Also the distribution of Pedicularis siphonantha is mentioned to be from Kashmir to Eastern Himalayas. So I think the long-flowered species throughout the Himalayas is Pedicularis siphonantha.
The other long-flowered species, with hairy flower-tube, is Pedicularis megalantha, but restricted to E. Himalayas.

Pedicularis punctata from Valley
Pls Validate
Pedicularis punctata
Going by more than 6 number of pinnae pairs (in all three sets of images taken at different times) as per the keys and details at Critical Taxonomic Appraisal of Some Taxa of Pedicularis from Indian Himalayas Belonging to Section Siphonanthae by Arti Garg (2009) (pdf), I feel it may be more closer to Pedicularis siphonantha D. Don
Please check the lenghth of corolla tube also.

Are these the same flower in my earlier post VOF Week 290812_DS_04?

I think two plants are mixed up here, taken from different habitats as suggested by file numbers also.
642, 643 have corolla tube slightly longer than calyx, side lobes of lower lip much broader than entire middle lobe.........may be P. rhinanthoides
681, 682 and 683 have corolla tube at least 4 times the calyx, the middle lobe of lower lip notched and larger than 642 and 643.................Should be P. hookeriana
After seeing detailed images from ... and our discussion especially input by ... the revised identification seems to be
681, 682, 683......P. siphonantha
642, 643.............P. pectinata

Pedicularis siphonantha (Tube Lousewort)

Seen so many beautiful flowers on the way to VOF - and irony is that I do not know anyone's id.
Looking forward for id from experts.

I hope Pedicularis hookeriana
