Contributor Text: YASIN J. NASIR
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: May.
Type: Type: Baluchistan: Mir Ali Khel, 3600', Duthie 18922 (K, isotype RAW).
Distribution: Distribution: Endemic.
Comment/Acknowledgements: The species is barely separable from Heliotropium biannulatum, from in a glabrous area present between two zones of hairs on the inside of the corolla tube. In the isotype the corolla lobes are more than 0.5 mm long. Kazmi (l.c. in nota) relates the species to the afghan Heliotropium dicriphorum Rech. f. & Riedl, but I do not have any material for comparison.
