After publication of FOC volume 15, it came to our attention that the complete basionym reference was missing in an earlier publication (Chen & C. M. Hu, Fl. Xizang. 3: 799. 1986), so the FOC publication is a comb. nov.
Also after publication of the Flora of China treatment, the following combination was made -
Primula euprepes (W. W. Smith) A. J. Richards, Plantsman, n.s. 7(2): 125. 2008.
Hu (J. Trop. Subtrop. Bot. 19: 222-224. 2011) noted that the correct name for the black-flowered Primula from Zhedou Shan is Primula melanantha (Franchet) C. M. Hu.
