39b. Galium paradoxum subsp. duthiei Ehrendorfer & Schön­beck-Temesy in Tan et al., Davis & Hedge Festschrift. 113. 1989.

达氏林猪殃殃 da shi lin zhu yang yang

Leaves broadly ovate to suborbicular, (5-)6-10(-17) × (3.5-)4-7(-10) mm, truncate at base. Corolla lobes acute to acuminate. Fl. Jul-Aug, fr. Jul-Sep.

On shady (sub)alpine rocks; 2700-4000 m. Hubei, Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan [Bhutan, India, Nepal].

In an otherwise quite typical specimen of this subspecies (e.g., Sichuan, Lutinghsien Mujiaogou: T. P. Wang 18-9-1938, PE) the stipules at the mid-stem region are quite comparable to true leaves, only slightly smaller. This results in a considerable similarity to small plants of Galium hoffmeisteri from G. sect. Hylaea, which differ by their leaves and leaflike stipules in whorls of up to 5 or 6.
