Corydalis edulis

Corydalis edulis (紫堇).

There are many species of corydalis in bloom right now, some of which are easier to identify than others. I have been finding this one in the semi-shaded spots on Yuelu Mountain. Its Latin name suggests it is edible and perhaps the tuber is, but I would not risk it.
