303b. Rhododendron araiophyllum subsp. lapidosum (T. L. Ming) M. Y. Fang, Proc. Fourth Int. Rhododendron Conf. 57. 1989.

石生杜鹃 shi sheng du juan

Rhododendron lapidosum T. L. Ming, Acta Bot. Yunnan. 3: 113. 1981.

Leaf blade narrowly elliptic-lanceolate, 5.5–7.5 × 1.3–1.7 cm; abaxial surface with glabrous midrib. Fl. Apr.

Thickets on rocky or stony slopes; ca. 1900 m. NE Yunnan.

Rhododendron lapidosum requires further investigation and may not in fact be a subspecies of R. araiophyllum. The corolla shape is apparently tubular-campanulate, quite unlike that of subsp. araiophyllum.
