Pleurospermum hookeri var. thomsonii C. B. Clarke


Description from Flora of China

Hymenidium chloroleucum (Diels) Pimenov & Kljuylov; Pleurospermum affine H. Wolff; P. likiangense H. Wolff (1930), not H. Wolff (1929); P. markgrafianum H. Wolff; P. pseudoinvolucratum H. Wolff; P. tibetanicum H. Wolff; Trachydium chloroleucum Diels.

Bracteoles linear-lanceolate, margin narrow, tinged brown, apex usually pinnatifid.

This variety has reputed medicinal value (in Xizang). Some authors consider Hymenidium (Trachydium) chloroleucum (including Pleurospermum likiangense) to be a separate taxon, differentiated by the less dissected leaflets and bracteoles with a pinnate apex. Further work is needed on this complex group.

Grassy slopes; 2700–4500 m. Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, SE Xizang, NW Yunnan.
