Laboratory comment:
We leave Kews´ taxonomy here on purpose and incline towards listing the different subspecies of Lilium primulinum separately. The reason for that is the still insufficient genetic analysis of the entire Lilium primulinum complex. Lilium poilanei, Lilium nepalense and most of all Lilium majoense are supposed to be closely related to Lilium primulinum and maybe will get integrated into the primulinum-complex one day.

Lilium primulinum var. ochraceum occurs in Yunnan (SE, near Mengtze)
