The identity of Ranunculus ailaoshanicus (Ranunculaceae) from China

QIONG YUAN, QIN-ER YANG

Abstract


We demonstrate that Ranunculus ailaoshanicus (Ranunculaceae) described from Ailao Shan, Yunnan, China, is conspecific with R. ficariifolius, a very widespread and highly variable species. We therefore place the former in synonymy within the latter.
