Thlaspi cochleariforme was reduced in FRPS to the synonymy of T. thlaspioides (Pallas) Kitagawa, but the latter is a synonym of T. alpestre Linnaeus, a species restricted to Europe. The records in FRPS and Fl. Xinjiang. (2(2): 83. 1995) of Thlaspi ferganense N. Busch from Xinjiang are based on misidentified plants of T. cochleariforme.

Grassy slopes, roadsides, meadows; 600-3700 m. Gansu, Hebei, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Nei Mongol, Xinjiang, Xizang [Kashmir, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan].
