Rhododendron trichocladum Franchet var. longipilosum Cowan, Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 19: 186. 1936.

Leaf blade adaxially densely long-setose. Fl. Jun–Jul.

Thickets, scrub, slopes; 3000–4000 m. S Xizang, NW Yunnan [NE Myanmar].

It may be better to treat var. longipilosum as a variety or subspecies of R. trichocladum, as originally described. The bristles then fit. On the type, the scales are subequal on the abaxial surface of the leaf blades.
