Euphrasia transmorrisonensis Hayata


Description from Flora of China

Euphrasia tatakensis Masamune.

Perennials, to 16 cm tall. Stems usually prostrate and apically ascending, simple or branched, entirely pubescent or with hairs along 2 lines. Leaves ovate, 3-10 X 2-8 mm, papery, glabrous or sparsely pubescent, rarely hispid on margin, base broadly cuneate to rounded, margin acutely 1-3(or 4)-toothed on each side, apex obtuse. Spikes terminal; bracts similar to leaves in shape and size, slightly wider, sparsely to rarely densely glandular hairy. Calyx 3.5-5 mm, sparsely to densely glandular hairy; lobes as long as tube, lanceolate, apex acute. Corolla mostly white, galea purplish-maroon on outer surface, upper side 0.8-1.3 cm; lower lip with a yellow palate and dark longitudinal lines, outer surface with glandular hairs ca. 8 mm. Anther locules with barbate hairs along slit after dehiscence. Capsule oblong-ovoid, shorter than calyx, hirsute. Fl. Aug-Nov.

Euphrasia transmorrisonensis is relatively common, variable, and similar to E. matsudae from which it seems to be distinguished by its glandular hairy bracts and calyces.

* Alpine areas; 2600-3300 m. Taiwan.
