Codonopsis bragaensis

As far as we aware this was found in just one location in 1989 but has never been found elsewhere since. It is distinctive as the pale corolla is completely covered in fine white hairs, a feature not found in any other Codonopsis. It’s location was approximately 3 miles SW of Braga in the Marsyandi Valley, on the slopes of Annapurna, at an altitude of approximately 3800m. Special thanks to Chris Sanders for these very rare photos.
