Circaea quadrisulcata (Maximowicz) Franchet & Savatier var. ovata Honda, Bot. Mag. (Tokyo) 46: 3. 1932.

This is the hybrid Circaea cordata × C. mollis and is morphologically intermediate between the parents. It resembles C. cordata in the long, recurved and straight, sharply pointed hairs on some parts of the plant, but is similar to C. mollis in having an exserted, ringlike nectary and darkened stem nodes.

Disturbed areas in broad-leaved deciduous forests; below 100-1500 m. Sichuan, Yunnan [Japan, S Korea].
