Perhaps next few weeks would be worthwhile to explore these species.

I am of the naive feeling that it may be unexplored species.
If I am not mistaken this one is pending for ID with Flowers of India since 6 years; Tabish has the feeling that it could be a new species.

Yes Dinesh ji
With more than 200 species reported from India, I think a lot of digging is needed, but then for this and other interesting species we will have to take multiple photographs from different angles, lower and upper leaves on stem pictures and pictures of fruit, and then make a few herbarium specimens, if we are sure it is a new species. I have a feeling this may even be true for Geranium, which has lesser species in India but with interesting variation.

We need to dig in only little more than one hundred :-) - Balsaminaceae flora is poor in regions to the north and west of Hiamlayan range and till now no one species from Western Ghats was found in Himalayas and vice versa...

I think it is close to the images and details at Impatiens tricornis Lindl.

This is what we have assumed as Impatiens meeboldii Hook.f. for now, although this complex needs more detailed work to resolve (i am are working on it). And It's definitely not I. tricornis Lindl. which in fact belongs to a completely different section i.e. I. scabrida complex.
