6b. Spiraea bella var. pubicarpa T. T. Yu & L. T. Lu, Acta Phytotax. Sin. 18: 490. 1980.

毛果藏南绣线菊 mao guo zang nan xiu xian ju

Description from Flora of China

Follicles pubescent throughout.

One of us (Lu) believes that Spiraea hemicryptophyta Grierson (Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 44: 262. 1987), described from China (SE Xizang, NW Yunnan), N Myanmar, Nepal, and Sikkim, may be synonymous with S. bella and that further study is necessary to determine its identity. The new species was said to differ from S. bella in having stems annual, rarely branched, 20--40 cm tall, and corymbs all terminal.

Mountain broad-leaved or coniferous forests; 2300--2600 m. S Xizang.
