Oreocome sect. Evittatae is described as new to science to accommodate the former Selinum vaginatum from India and Pakistan and a newly described species, O. aegopodioides, from Uttarakhand, India, both without vittae in their mericarps. O. sect. Oreocome is enlarged by two species from Afghanistan, the newly described O. nuristanica, which is related to O. candollei, and O. duriuscula, which is transferred from Selinum. S. stewartii from Afghanistan and Pakistan is transferred to Seseli. Correspondingly three new nomenclatural combinations, O. arguta (for S. vaginatum and the conspecific Levisticum argutum), O. duriuscula and Seseli stewartii, are validated. Our analyses revealed, that the genus Selinum is entirely absent from the Sino-Himalayan region and adjacent Afghanistan. Oreocome in its revised circumscription comprises nine species in two sections.
