4a. Fragaria nilgerrensis var. nilgerrensis

黄毛草莓(原变种) huang mao cao mei (yuan bian zhong)

Description from Flora of China

Fragaria hayatae Makino; F. nilgerrensis subsp. hayatae (Makino) Staudt.

Leaves abaxially yellow-brown sericeous, not papillate, hairs dense and long on veins.

Two of us (Ikeda and Ohba) believe that the plants from Taiwan should be separated as Fragaria hayatae (Makino, Bot. Mag. (Tokyo) 26: 285. 1912; F. nilgerrensis subsp. hayatae; F. vesca var. minor), which differs from F. nilgerrensis in having 1(--3)-flowered inflorescences and petals obovate to broadly so, white with a reddish purple base; F. nilgerrensis, on the other hand, has (1 or)2--5(or 6)-flowered inflorescences and petals orbicular, white throughout.

Valley forests, meadows on mountain slopes; 700--3000 m. Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Taiwan, Yunnan [E India, Nepal, Sikkim, N Vietnam].
