P. caveana

P. chumbiensis?: We were hoping these exquisite plants found at Tso Phu might be P. chumbiensis, as the location is correct and they match the description given in ?A Quest of Flowers? as ?a handsome plant with reddish leaf-stalks and with up to half a dozen pale yellow flowers carried on a reddish scape 6-9 inches high?.

Photographs taken in 2008 were identified as P. alpicola by Pam Eveleigh (www.primulaworld.com) and John Richards, but we hope that these ones taken in 2009 might be more convincing.

P. concinna: Similar to P. walshii, but with cream meal which the latter does not. This is clear in the first 2 pictures, but not in the others. P. walshii normally has a white ring at the centre of the flower which is absent in P. concinna.

P. glabra

P.griffithii: past flowering, but distinctive seed heads. Perhaps hybridisation with P. calderiana accounts for the variety of leaf shape.

P.involucrata: predominently white flowered individuals recorded, but occasional pink ones seen
