Flower/Fruit: Fl.Per.: May-July.
Type: Type: Kurram, Shendtoi, Aitchison 383 (K).
Distribution: Distribution: Pakistan.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Apparently known only from the original gathering which was probably made, despite the specific epithet, in Pakistan, at the head of the Kurram Valley, Shendtoi Gorge. Probably not found in Afghanistan, Kashmir, Nepal and S.E. Tibet as mentioned in Flora Iranica. Grows on rocks and stones from 2270-3330 m. The flowers are quite large for the short moss-like stems.
Map Location: B-7 Kurram, Shendtoi, Aitchison 134 (K).
