Easily confused with : Ground-Elder (Aegopodium podagraria) which has similar leaves but they are only up to 2-pinnate rather than 3-pinnate of Wild Angelica. The stems are green (rather than often suffused purple), any sheaths under the branches are small or absent, and the fruits lack wings and have the two long stamens stretching wide apart like an old V-shaped TV aerial for 405-line B&W sets.

Not to be semantically confused with : Yellow Archangel (Lamiastrum galeobdolon) [a plant with similar common name to the scientific name of Wild Angelica (Angelica sylvestris)]
