17. Pleione ×taliensis P. J. Cribb & Butterfield, Gen. Pleione, ed. 2. 123. 1999.

大理独蒜兰 da li du suan lan

Pseudobulb 1-leaved. Leaf not fully developed at flowering. Floral bract shorter than ovary. Flower purplish pink, sometimes tinged white, with bold broad purple stripes on apical margin of lip; disk with 4 or 5 ragged lamellae. Fl. Apr-May.

● Grassy and shrubby banks, under ericaceous shrubs and trees, under Pinus yunnanensis; 2400-2700 m. NW Yunnan.

This entity is thought to be a natural hybrid of Pleione yunnanensis and P. bulbocodioides. It is similar to P. yunnanensis by having an elongate pedicel and ovary, but it differs by having a purplish pink flower, ragged lamellae on the lip, and broad purple stripes on the apical margin of the lip.
