Comment/Acknowledgements: This species has often been misinterpreted in the past as Ranunculus rufosepalus or Ranunculus hirtellus. It differs from former by the presence of whitish hairs on the sepals (not reddish-brown) and from the the latter in its smaller size and I-2–flowered inflorescence. Found in rocky areas up to 4400 m.
