5. Souliea Franchet, J. Bot. (Morot). 12: 69. 1898.

黄三七属 huang san qi shu

Li Liangqian; Michio Tamura

Herbs perennial. Rhizome robust. Stems with membranous scales at base. Leaves petiolate, 2 or 3 × ternately sect. Inflorescence racemose. Flowers actinomorphic. Sepals 5, petaloid, white, obovate or obovate-elliptic. Petals 5, flabellate-obovate, denticulate. Stamens numerous; filaments narrowly linear; anthers broadly ellipsoid. Follicles 1--3, broadly linear, shortly stalked, reticulate; persistent style short. Seeds many, black, narrowly ovoid-globose.

One species: Bhutan, China, Myanmar, Sikkim.

Elsewhere (Compton et al., Taxon 47: 593–634. 1998), Souliea has been transferred to Actaea . However, for the present account, as in FRPS, the authors have maintained Souliea as distinct, and regional advisor Rudolf V. Kamelin (pers. comm.) agrees.
