Diagnostic description: 

This species and Sinocarum vaginatum form a group of narrow-leaved taxa with unclear taxonomic limits: flower color and leaflet dimensions are particularly variable. Further work with new collections will be needed to clarify the situation.

W Sichuan, SE Xizang, NW Yunnan [N Myanmar].
