黄斑百合 huang ban bai he

Fritillaria flavida Rendle, J. Bot. 44: 45. 1906; Lilium euxanthum (W. W. Smith & W. E. Evans) Sealy; L. nanum f. flavidum (Rendle) H. Hara; Nomocharis euxantha W. W. Smith & W. E. Evans.

Tepals yellow, unspotted.

Forest margins, alpine grasslands; 3800--4300 m. SE Xizang, Yunnan [N Myanmar, Sikkim].

Henry Noltie (pers. comm.) considers Lilium euxanthum (from SE Xizang and Yunnan) to be distinct from L. nanum var. flavidum (from S Xizang (Chumbi valley), N Myanmar, and Sikkim). The former has oblong leaves, which do not overtop the flower, and golden yellow tepals; the latter has linear, finely tapering leaves, which overtop the flower, and pale lemon-colored tepals.
