Identification of umbellifers ...

... is aided by examination of the fruits, bracts and bracteoles. The first was unavailable to you, but a photograph of a side view of the umbel would have helped identification.

This would include confirming that this is indeed an umbellifer, and not Valeriana officinalis, which has similar foliage, and is regularly mistaken for an umbellifer.

Identification of umbellifers

Point taken, thanks. I couldn't see any bracts or bracteoles.

At least it can't be Valerian, as the leaves are alternate.
