Type: Type: "Cashmere" Boyle (LIV photo!).
Distribution: Distribution: Soviet C. Asia (2), Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Although recorded by R. R. Stewart (l.c.) from the Kurram valley, I have not seen any specimens from there; there may have been confusion with Phlomis spectabilis, q.v. Plants from parts of Soviet C. Asia (Pamir-Alai) previously called Phlomis cashmeriana are now referred by Soviet botanists to Phlomis fruticetorum Gontsch.
