Distribution: Distribution: Afghanistan, Pakistan & Kashmir.
Comment/Acknowledgements: I have examined a duplicate type specimen of Omphalodes heterophylla (Swat: Kalam, Rech. f. 19442) which is identical with Lepechiniella microcarpa. Specimens annotated as such by Riedl (e.g. Bowes Lyon 198! Rech. f. 35680!) are Lepechiniella microcarpa. Besides, the figure illustrated of the fruit of the type specimen (Riedl in Fl. Iran. l.c. Tab. 17, fig. 5) matches Lepechiniella microcarpa fruits. Lepechiniella microcarpa occasionally shows fruit dimorphism-even on the same shoot or inflorescence; apart from the typical smooth and rimmed nutlets, there have been observed nutlets which are minutely tubercled and with a rim that is not so prominent. Specimens seen of such a nature are: Griffith 5975 (Type no. of Paracaryum microcarpum, K) and R.R. & I.D. Stewart 2916 (RAW). These nutlets do not appear to be full and may even be sterile. Generally found in rocky places from 1800-2700 m.
