Basionym: Anaphalis alata Maximowicz, Bull. Acad. Imp. Sci. Saint-Pétersbourg 27: 478. 1882; A. chanetii (H. Léveillé) H. Léveillé; A. sinica var. remota Y. Ling, nom. illeg. superfl.; Gnaphalium chanetii H. Léveillé.

Stems laxly caespitose; internodes 10-20 mm. Leaves lanceolate, linear-oblong, or linear, 4-9 × 0.5-1.5 cm, abaxially densely white or whitish yellow lanate, adaxially sparsely lanate, base attenuate, decurrent on stems and becoming narrow wing. Phyllaries white.

Anaphalis alata was recorded from C and W Nepal in Annot. Checkl. Fl. Pl. Nepal (49. 2000). This occurrence is disjunct from the distribution in N China (see flora_id=110&taxon_id=242302857; accessed 15 Apr 2011).

The valid publication of Anaphalis alata Maximowicz var. viridis Handel-Mazzetti (Acta Horti Gothob. 12: 245. 1938) simultaneously created the autonym A. alata var. alata, which has priority at varietal rank over A. sinica var. remota Y. Ling (Acta Phytotax. Sin. 11: 103. 1966), hence the need for this new combination.
