Better known as Angelica archangelica subsp. himalaica (Clarke) G. Singh, a name I had proposed in 1976, as other accepted infraspecific  taxa are recognised at subspecific level only. Never mind Unresolved status at the PLant List. That should be their problem not ours.

The Himalayan Angelica seems to have gone through a churning, a samudra-manthan!
According to this paper of 2002, this Angelica species should be called Angelica oreadum (DIELS) M.HIROE (or Angelica oreada):
---------------------------
Angelica oreadum (DIELS) M.HIROE, Umbell. World: 1430 (1979) (“oreada”) { Archangelica oreadum DIELS in Notizbl. Bot. Gart. Berlin 14:353 (1939)
= Archangelica officinalis (MOENCH) HOFFM. var. himalaica C.B.CLARKE in HOOK. f. Fl. Brit. Ind. 2: 707 (1879), p.p. { Angelica archangelica L. var. himalaica (C.B.CLARKE) KRISHNA & BADHWAR in J. Sci. Ind. Res. 11: 251 (1952); NASIR in
Fl. West Pakist. 20: 126 (1972). {L.f.Angelica archangelica himalaica (C. B. CLARKE) WEINERT in Feddes Repert. 84 (4): 310 (1973). { Angelica archangelica L. subsp. himalaica (C.B.CLARKE) G. SINGH in Forest Fl. Srinagar: 183 (1976); G. SINGH & G.M. OZA in Bull. Bot. Surv. India 16 (14): 168 (1977, “1974”).
-----------------------------
 I am attaching the paper.
