Xizang. 1: 722. 1983. Herbs perennial, 10–20 cm tall, densely pubescent or sparsely glandular hairy. Roots conical, slender. Stems clustered, simple. Basal leaves caespitose, oblanceolate, 3–5 cm × 3–6 mm, both surfaces shortly pubescent, base attenuate into long petiole, apex obtuse; cauline leaves 2 or 3 pairs, lanceolate, smaller than basal leaves, broadly cuneate at base, sessile. Flowers (1–)3–8. Bracts lanceolate, densely glandular hairy. Pedicel 2–8 mm, densely villous with pallid hairs. Calyx narrowly campanulate, 7–13 mm, densely glandular hairy; calyx teeth triangular, margin membranous, ciliate, apex obtuse; veins dark violet, robust, reticulate. Androgynophore ca. 1 mm. Petals violet, ca. as long as or slightly longer than calyx; claws cuneate, ciliate, auricles minute, limbs bifid; lobes truncate at apex, each with a lateral tooth; coronal scales ligulate. Stamens included. Capsule not seen. Fl. Jul–Aug. • 4700–5200 m. Xizang (Zhongba Xian). This species differs from Silene himalayensis only in its shorter pedicels and later flowering, and it could perhaps be regarded as conspecific. The type has not been seen by the present authors.
