Margaret, as I'm sure you are aware, I don't have the scope to go on tours at the moment - all my photos are taken in the UK - so I can't contribute anything interesting, but I'd just like to say what a fabulous idea for threads on the website. Both this thread and that on Meconopsis are full of lovely photos and information; being able to see and compare the different species, photographed in habitat in the wild, is wonderful. I urge anyone who has photos of other primula or meconopsis species or forms from this area to add them to the thread.

Primula tanneri ssp. nepalensis

OK, doing as I'm told! Here are some pictures of this delicate species. Just two individuals seen, both in deep shade on the north facing slopes of the Yaksa valley. The plants were growing in deep moss on the swollen base of the forest tree trunks. Hence the poor depth of field!

Primula chumbiensis/alpicola

Glad to see the discussion of this, and thought I would add one more picture showing flowers with a marked red ring.
