Paraquilegia gangotriana Pusalkar & D.K.Singh was wrongly mentioned long as P.microphylla in literature till it was correctly identified and differentiated from P. micrphylla.

It is a beautiful perennial growing in rock crevices and blooming in June.

I really appreciate the hard work that went into taking this picture for the habitat is quite harsh and precarious
and thanks for showing this rare flower
Wow what a habitat! No wonder God trying to protect these beautiful flowers......
