Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: July-August.
Type: Type: Pangi, 8000 ft., Watt (Iso.-KI)
Distribution: Chitral: B-6 Bombrait Gol, Stainton 2240 (RAW), Kashmir: B-8 Rattu-Gurikot, Schmid 1766 (RAW).

Distribution: Endemic in the W. Himalaya.

Comment/Acknowledgements: Watt (l.c.) describes the plant as creeping. The stem from the isotype at Kew is erect to ascendent, only the rootstalk is creeping. The leaves are much smaller in the specimen examined than Watt’s measurements (3-6 pollices). The flowers are slightly smaller. The sepals are erect according to Watt’s figure (but in his description he calls them recurva).
