Thank you Dr. Liden for ID as Dactylicapnos cordata Lidén. I was guessing so but could not confirm !

Dactylicapnos cordata. See the broad flower and the inner petals that appear to be much protruding. The two species differ substantially also in position of leaflets: D. cordata having the two primary leaflets opposite, whereas in odontocarpa they are well separated on the leaf rhachis. Finally, the pedicels in D. odontocarpa are basally arcuate-reflexed, whereas they are ± straight in D. cordata.

The differences in nectaries and fruits cannot be seen in these pictures, but are also distinct.


BTW, I just discovered that the distribution map in Flora of Nepal is corrupted for Dactylicapnos macrocapnos ssp. macrocapnos. This is only known from the extreme west of Nepal.
