Sinocrassula indica var. luteorubra (Praeg.) S. H. Fu


Description from Flora of China

Sedum indicum (Decaisne) Raymond-Hamet var. luteorubrum Praeger, Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 13: 84. 1921; S. paoshingense S. H. Fu; Sinocrassula paoshingensis (S. H. Fu) H. Ohba et al.

Plants 10-20 cm tall. Leaves narrow, glabrous, margin entire. Petals yellow with reddish apex, 5-5.5 mm.

This variety was treated at specific rank, as Sinocrassula paoshingensis (S. H. Fu) H. Ohba et al. (J. Jap. Bot. 75: 296. 2000) and as S. luteorubra H. Chuang (in C. Y. Wu, Fl. Yunnan. 8: 142. Nov 1997). The basionym of S. luteorubra was not fully cited so the name is invalid under Art. 33.3 of the St. Louis Code. Earlier in the same year, Chuang described S. luteorubra var. maculosa H. Chuang (Acta Bot. Yunnan. 19: 224. Aug 1997), which is invalid under Art. 43.1 of the Code. This name was later validated as S. indica var. maculosa H. Chuang ex Thiede (Cactus Succ. J. (Los Angeles) 71: 160. 1999). The taxon is known to the present authors only from the protologue. It was distinguished by its smaller flowers, petals 3-3.5 mm, with sepals and petals bearing many "glandular spots."

* Dry stony and gravelly slopes; 700-3700 m. Sichuan, NW Yunnan.
