Cochlianthus gracilis var. brevipes

Description from Flora of China

Leaflets densely hairy. Upper 2 calyx teeth connate into an emarginate lip. Ovary with thick, short stipe, without cup-shaped disk at base. Style and filaments coiled inward for 2 turns in upper part. Fl. Aug-Sep.

One of us (Thulin) has seen no material of Cochlianthus gracilis var. brevipes, but, judging from the description, it seems so different from typical C. gracilis that it would perhaps be better treated as a distinct species. Further study is needed.

● Scrub, roadsides, mountain slopes; ca. 1800 m. Sichuan (Bao­xing).
