Recently identified Himalayan plants

I am regularly approached by those who have trekked in the Himalaya for help identifying or confirming the identity of plants the photographed. I have decided (as of January 2017) to start a page, in chronological order, of recent specimens I have named:

Pleurospermum amabile  see:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/rogernix/10857843443/in/album-72157637673450755/  and https://www.flickr.com/photos/rogernix/10857816823/in/album-72157637673450755/.  These two images show a striking high-altitude umbellifer growing in the snow below a pass in Northern Bhutan.
