7k. Galium boreale var. rubioides (Linnaeus) Čelakovsky, Prodr. Fl. Böhmen. 2: 281. 1872.

茜砧草 qian zhen cao

Galium rubioides Linnaeus, Sp. Pl. 1: 105. 1753.

Leaf blade ovate-lanceolate or ovate, 4-6 mm wide, abaxially pilosulous or scabrous at least along veins. Ovary and mericarps glabrous. Fl. and fr. Jun-Sep.

Mountain slopes, grasslands; 1100-1400 m. Hebei, Heilongjiang, Henan, Jilin, Liaoning, Xinjiang [Russia; Europe].

This broad- and large-leaved taxon is quite distinct from Galium boreale s.s. in Europe and is usually treated there as a separate species. Contrary to the above distribution data given by W. C. Chen (loc. cit.: 261) and according to Pobedimova et al. (loc. cit.: 420) it does not extend into Asia.
