Christolea pumila (Kurz) Jafri, comb. nov.

Christolea pumila

  • Ermania koelzii O.E. Schulz
  • Parrya pumila Kurz
  • Vvedenckyella pumila (Kurz) Botsch.

    Similar to the previous species but smaller and few flowered with flowers slightly larger. Leaves spathulate, almost entire or obscurely 1-3-toothed above, c. as long or slightly exceeding the inflorescence. Racemes c. 3-flowered. Sepals 4-5 mm long. Petals c. 9 mm long. Fruits oblong-ovate, short, flattened with pilose margins; style c. 1 mm long, somewhat broad.

    Fl. Per.: June -July.

    Type: Described from W. Tibet, Rupshu, 5000-6000 m.

    Distribution: Endemic to Tibet.

    An incompletely known and rare species, and may not be found different from the previous species with more records and full knowledge of the variations in the taxa. Both occur in the same region, W. Tibet and at higher altitudes, 5000 m or above. Schulz has pointed out only some differences between E. koelzii and E. lanuginosa, which do not seem to be much different except that of the degree and flower size.
