Dear all

The Thalictrum reniforme is confusing with the Thalictrum chelidonii.  

Please check the following two link for the T. chelidonii and T. reniforme from the eflora of China. Then only it is possible to finalize the species. 

With Regards

This should be Thalictrum reniforme. All other closer species, T.
chelidonii, T. delavayi, are hairless - the pictures here show a
prominently pubescent plant.
The only sticky point is that Flora of China mentions the length of
the flower-stalks of Thalictrum reniforme, as 0.8--2.5 mm. I suspect
that is an error - it should be 0.8--2.5 cm - but that has to be
checked from some other source.
