The Himalayan species Lloydia longiscapa Hooker was recorded from NW Yunnan by Handel-Mazzetti (Symb. Sin. 7: 1202. 1936, based on Handel-Mazzetti 6700) and later stated to occur in W China, including S Xizang, by Hara (in Ohashi, Bull. Univ. Mus. Univ. Tokyo 8: 133. 1975). It is closely related to L. ixiolirioides but differs in having glabrous tepals. None of the many specimens examined for this treatment belongs to L. longiscapa; therefore, the species is excluded until its presence in China can be confirmed.
