Acomstylis elata (Wall. ex G. Don) F. Bolle, Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. Beih. 72: 83 83 1933
Syn: Geum elatum Wall. ex G. Don; Sieversia elata (Wall. ex G. Don) Royle

Perennial herb with up to 30 cm long basal leaves, deeply pinnatisect with closely set leaflets, upper few smaller; flowering stem with few small leaves, with 1-6 flowers; flowers yellow, 2-4 cm across; calyx-lobes deltoid-ovate; petals orbicular, exceeding the calyx, yellow; achenes hairy, acute at both ends.

Photographed from Khillenmarg Meadow, above Gulmarg Kashmir in last week of June.

I would like the members examine the plant uploaded on FOI. I have a feeling that it may be a species of Potentilla and not Acomastylis elata. Please go through following links. The species may rarely also have red flowers. Please note larger flowers and emarginate petals.
