Comment/Acknowledgements: Description based on a specimen from Bhutan (coll. No. 905, K). Reportedly collected by Kitamura and Honda from Swat (Sch6nbeck-Temesy, l.c.); I have not seen the specimen, but if correct, an interesting westward extension of the range. Resembles Geranium wallichianum, but differs in the narrower stipules, the villous filaments and shorter sepal awn (1 mm).
