Comment/Acknowledgements: Hara in Kitam.,Fl.P1.W.Pak.81.1964, reports this plant from Karakorum (July 14, 1955, S. Nakao s.n.) and Stewart, Ann.Cat.Vasc.Pl.W.Pak. & Kashm. 343.1972, from Gilgit, Nalter Valley (Duthie 12428), but I have not seen any plant from these areas. However, I have examined material from India, Kumaon, Bedang glacier, 4000 m, Koelz 21065 and from Rangdum, Zanskar, Koelz 2903. Grows at an alt. of c. 4000 m, on rocks, forming dense mats.
